How Biathlon works Eastern Province Biathlon

Biathlon

is a multisport discipline which involves running and swimming over various distances for the different age groups. These disciplines take place at different times on the same day. The running takes place first and the swimming will follow thereafter in either a 25m or 50m pool. Times are recorded for each athlete and points are allocated according to times recorded. The ideal is to achieve a combined score of at least 2000 points. (click here for table)

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE FOLLOWING TIMES ARE UNDER REVIEW AND MAY BE CHANGED.
