Get Ready for National Modern Pentathlon Week! Thursday, 26th Feb 2015 Eleanor Guest  Pentathlon Week 2015

We're introducing National Modern Pentathlon Week; 6-12th April 2015. The purpose of this campaign week is to:

  • To create an inspirational and co-ordinated week of Modern Pentathlon related activity to attract and retain members.
  • To engage the whole pentathlon family in one activity campaign and therefore provide a motivational centre piece.
  • To link localised provision for the sport to our mass participation event – the British Schools’ Modern Biathlon Championships – providing follow up activities introducing the different disciplines and easing the transition into clubs and Modern Pentathlon activity.
  • To raise the profile of Modern Pentathlon as a participation sport as well as at performance and elite level.  Linked to this would be delivering some of the key messages about what our fabulous sport has to offer.  

   
Pentathlon GB cannot make this campaign happen without YOU!  We are looking for a range of activities to demonstrating the range and breadth of our sport: from grass roots to talent; from two to five disciplines; from taster days to competitions.  All of these activities should show that we are fun, diverse and challenging as a sport.
 
Activities can happen across the country at any point through the week commencing 6 April.  Examples of activities include:
 

  • Taster sessions
  • Family fun days
  • Holiday camps
  • Introductory competitions – inter/intra club (Modern Biathlon, Biathle, Modern Triathlon, RUN SHOOT)
  • Adapted activities – for young participants, participants with disabilities
  • Activities to engage participants/parents into coaching
  • Charity activities
  • Challenge activities
  • Engage a role model to help with your club activity

 
This is a time to be creative or even just celebrate what you already offer by opening your doors to new members through this campaign.
 
If you are interested and want to know more please contact a member of the Development Team who are here to help you make the most of the campaign.  The week will be officially launched on 23rd February. So to make the most of the opportunity we need a full to bursting activity schedule between 6th and 12th April. If you have something to promote as part of this week please complete the attached form and return to louise.andren@pentathlongb.org – we need the details of your activity by Thursday 19th February.
 
Our Development Officers can help by giving guidance on the activities you would like to run.  If you’re in the North then contact Rachael Handley: rachael.handley@pentathlongb.org or 07590 444372.  If you’re in the South then contact Miranda Palmer: miranda.palmer@pentathlongb.org or 07855 957024.

British Biathle Team Dominate in Dubai Saturday, 14th Feb 2015 Howard Jones  GB Team at the Atlantis

Hot temperatures and a last minute change of venue to the Atlantis Hotel on Dubai's Palm did not deter the British Team at the first Biathle World Tour of 2015.

The event held on the Atlantis's Nasima Beach in front of the famous Aquaventure Water Park saw teams from Germany, Italy, South Africa and the host United Arab Emirates as well as ourselves. The GB team were so dominent that no individual finished lower than second position.

The team's first involvement was in the Youth D races and there were immmediately emphatic wins for both Rebecca Wren and Kieron Mutch with Josh Dreelan finishing second.

Sophie Mutch's very impressive swim brought her through the field to finish second in the Youth C Girls race. Kizzie Price showed the rest the way with an easy win in the Youth B Girls race and Jessica Sutton took a deserved second place. Not to be outdone, Jamie Price matched his sister's performance with a win in the Youth A race.

James Greenwell overcame the shock of being lead into transition in the Masters A race with a masterly swim which brought him back into transition with a clear half a minute lead, enough to ensure victory by the end of the race. Andy Price gained second in the Masters B race and Mary and Peter Colett won their masters C and D races respectiveley.

The final events, the seniors, saw victory for Rachel Jones and a silver for Gareth Allen. So 8 winners and 5 runners up - a spectacularly good performance from the team who, imediately following the presentation went into the adjacent water park to relax and rest on their laurels for the remainder of the day.

The next World Tour event is in Italy on 7th June.
