2016 GB Biathle Race Series

The GB Biathle Race series provides the scores used for the British Biathle rankings and the points are awarded as follows:

  • 1st – 60 points
  • 2nd – 55 points
  • 3rd – 51 points
  • 4th – 48 points
  • 5th – 46 points
  • 6th – 44 points
  • 7th – 42 points

.... and so on down to 30th place

In 2016 there will be six races in the series and, although all six can be contested, a minimum of three must be completed to qualify for prizes and each competitor’s best results, up to a maximum of four, will be used for the rankings.

The top six in each category subject to having completed a minimum of three races will qualify for prizes at the end of the season.
