Discover Laser Run Series

After a successful inclusion into the School Games Finals 2018 held at Loughborough University, the Discover Laser Run School Series returns for another year, with the ambition to grow and reach out to new athletes. With the School Games finals moving to a Bi-annual event, Pentathlon GB will host its own Discover Laser Run School Series Final on the 1st September at Tudor Grange Sports Centre, Solihull, with the event to be included in the finals at Loughborough University in 2020.

Laser Run is the exhilarating finale to the Olympic sport of Modern Pentathlon with athletes required to alternate between shooting a laser pistol and running in a fast-paced and action-packed race to the finish line. This last phase of the Olympic Sport of Modern Pentathlon has now been adapted to form a stand-alone Laser Run competition suitable for all levels/abilities of competitors.

Laser Run explained:

1. Athletes start together with a short run into the shooting range and their allocated shooting bay.

2. Using a laser pistol, athletes shoot at their designated target as many times as it takes to register 5

successful hits. Each successful hit is represented by a green light.

3. After 5 successful hits or 50 seconds (whichever comes first), runners can leave the range and begin

their first run before returning to the same range, bay and pistol for their next shoot.

4. After their final shoot, competitors complete their last running loop before crossing the finish line.
