Regional Biathlon Race Saturday and Sunday

We’re all set to go for Saturday’s Supersprint and Sunday’s Individual biathlon races at Telemark.  It will be a fun weekend with great snow and lots of competitors.  Over 40 biathletes, including Cadets, will compete over the weekend.

The Supersprint is a very exciting biathlon competition where biathletes must knock down all 5 targets before leaving the range.  If they need more than 5 bullets to do this, they have to hand load each bullet after finishing their 5-shot magazine.  The race format is a mass start and the first three competitors across the finish line get the podium.

If you’d like to come out and see the action, race starts begin at 11 am both days and will be running for a couple of hours or so.  Competitors will be zeroing and warming up beginning at 10 am each day. Spectators are very welcome to see this exciting sport in action at the Telemark Nordic Club Biathlon Stadium, so come out and enjoy the fun!
