Modern Biathlon Series

The British Modern Biathlon series of competitions are a great starting point for athletes wishing to get involved in an exciting multi-discipline sporting environment and are organised to encourage as many people as possible to take part. Modern biathlon consists of a separate swim and run for all age groups with the distances depending on the competitor’s age.

Competitors run and swim times are converted to points, with the final positions being decided by the total number of points achieved overall after both disciplines.

There is also a team element to the competition as the three top scoring individuals in each age group from the same club or school count as a team. A club or school can have more than one team in an age group.
