We are delighted to announce that online entries for the inaugural BRITISH LASER RUN CHAMPIONSHIPS are now open.

The Championships, being held on 5th & 6th August at Yate Outdoor Sports Complex in Bristol are open to anybody who has a laser, level 1 or level 2 shooting certificate lodged at Head Office by the closing date. If you attended one of the UIPM Laser-Run City Tours and attended the 'safety briefing' to obtain a Day Shooting Permit, you will need to obtain a laser shooting certificate to compete - please let us know if you don't currently hold a laser certificate so we can point you in the right direction of a suitably qualified person who can give you the necessary coaching and guidance to help you obtain one prior to the competition. Obtaining the shooting certificate is an excellent opportunity to further practice your skills in preparation for the British Laser-Run Championships and will allow you to compete in any future competitions involving Laser-Run. Pistols will be available to loan on the day of competition.

The British Laser-Run Championships is a selection event for the UIPM Laser-Run Championships being held in Cape Town, South Africa on 5th - 7th October 2017 so top performers will be invited to compete (on a self-funded basis). The selection policy will be available on the website soon.

Please note that the closing date is 24th July, so please dont delay in getting your entries in to avoid disappointment. Until final entries are known we will not be able to determine which day each class will compete, but we will post a timetable on the website as soon as possible after the closing date.

Laser Run explained:

  • Athletes start together with a short run into the shooting range and their allocated shooting bay.
  • Using a laser pistol, athletes shoot at their designated target as many times at it takes to register 5 successful hits. Each successful hit is represented by a green light.
  • After 5 successful hits or 50 seconds (whichever comes first), runners can leave the range and begin their first run before returning to the same range, bay and pistol for their next shoot.
  • After their final shoot, competitors complete their last running loop before crossing the finish line.
