We are, again, very fortunate to be able to use the world class facilities at Aberdeen Sports Village for our biathlon. Although the event is a Scottish Championships, this is a local event with a wide range of abilities welcome. In the past we have had some experienced swimmers and runners competing but we have had many first timers and inexperienced competitors, all who leave feeling they have achieved something by completing the event.
Event stars at 10.30 am. First prizegiving 1.30pm approx. Exact times for swim and run given 4 days before the event.
Those born in 2010 and older can enter as, now also has U9 category. Includes adult classes too!
Includes team competition (3 in team from same category, gender and school entered as individuals.)
Awards 1st-6th individual, 1st-3rd team. All who complete receive a medal.
Team entry free with individual entry (we organise teams from individual Entries).
This is how it works;
Swim first. It is a timed swim with the distance depending on age About an hour after you swim you then run with distance depending on age (see table). The faster you swim and run, the more points you get with your times being converted into swim points and run points. The points are added together and the person with the most points wins. All who finish the swim and run will be presented with a medal.
