PROMOTIONAL SPORTS


WORLD SCHOOLS BIATHLON

WORLD SCHOOLS BIATHLON

The World Schools Biathlon is a fun and simple way to organize event which helps National Federations increase their membership numbers and also to identify talent and recruit the right type of athletes for international events.

It is also a great opportunity to expose thousands of youngsters to UIPM Modern Pentathlon with a scoring system which attempts to balance the performances in different sports. It is a system of competition which allows athletes worldwide to compete against each other by having their national federations send the results to UIPM who in turn compile and maintain the current world standings.

LASER RUN

LASER RUN

The Laser-Run is the latest original creation of UIPM, coming from the combined event and launched in 2015 as the last part of full Modern Pentathlon competition. Athletes of all ages from 8 to 80 can participate and the event can be staged on beaches, in cities and in the countryside.

Laser-Run combines Running and Shooting in fast-paced and dynamic races including four rounds of laser pistol shooting from 10 meters distance and four times 800 meters run. Athletes have to hit a target 5 times before they can run. The total number of hits is 20 and total running distance is 3,200 meters.

BIATHLE

BIATHLE

UIPM Biathle is a sub-sport of Modern Pentathlon invented to create opportunities to train Running and Swimming parts of Pentathlon in real race conditions.

It can also be seen as a sport in its own right. It bears close resemblance to aquathlon which also contains Swimming and Running but comes from triathlon sport. It should not be confused with biathlon.

Biathle is an event that involves the following sequence Run-Swim-Run. It is a world class sport but not an Olympic one. The legs are raced with continuous transitions like triathlon. The race length is usually 200 m swim and 3.2 km run, which is shorter than aquathlon.

TRIATHLE

TRIATHLE

Triathle is a new development initiative by UIPM where athletes compete in a shoot-swim-run competition. Triathle made its debut on international stage at the Biathle Triathle World Championships 2013. From 2014 onwards, it became a part of the Biathle World Tour to constitute the Biathle-Triathle World Tour.
