The Yorkshire Region of the MPAGB is a large region encompassing North, South, East and West Yorkshire
Modern pentathlon comprises five diverse sports: swimming, fencing, riding, running and shooting. Each discipline is held separately, apart from running and shooting, which are held together in a challenging and exciting combined laser-run (formally known as the combined run-shoot), the final discipline of the competition.
Competitors gain modern pentathlon points across each discipline, resulting in a handicapped start for the laser-run. The winner of the competition is the person who gains the most points across all 5 disciplines. Thanks to the handicap start in the laser-run, the winner is simply the first person to cross the finish line.In addition competitions are held using only some of the disciplines as follows:
Each of these have a regional qualifier, leading to an annual national championship.
