The 2nd Brilliant Bingley Biathlon

   9thJuly 2017 11am-5pm

An event organised by the Friends of Bingley Pool (Registered charity no. 1162758) in partnership with Bingley Amateur Swimming Club and Bingley Harriers and Athletics Club.

Proceeds from the event will be shared equally.

Race Format

The event will be run as a Modern Biathlon under Pentathlon GB rules.  However, this year will have adapted the points system to ensure everyone is rewarded for taking part.

Modern Biathlon consists of separate swimming and running events.  Distances vary by age category and points are awarded on the basis of time- the faster you go the more points you are awarded.  Points are also adjusted for age – so all the family can compete against one another!
