It has automatic qualifying places for BOTH of the British Championships. The swim is in a 25m, 6 lane pool and the run on a tartan track.

For further details of the Modern Biathlon Series 2015/16 including format, how to enter, qualification places available etc. please visit https://www.pentathlongb.org/schools/index.php

Entries for the following classes will open online at 11am on 1st September and will be restricted to 600 athletes.  Entries will close once capacity has been reached or the closing date whichever is the sooner.  The competition entry fee is £10 and athletes need to be fully paid up members of Pentathlon GB. 

Running alongside the biathlon will be a shooting competition - 20 shots at static paper targets for U15, U16 and U17 athletes who wish to gain competition experience before the Modern Biathlon Championships at the end of November – here, athletes choosing to enter the static shoot in addition to the biathlon have the opportunity to be selected for the series of Talent Identification Camps organised by the Pentathlon GB Performance Team.
