Syracuse Biathlon - Sprint Race & Biathlon Clinic/Training Day
Early registration for our August 17th event is now closed. Race day entries will be accepted the morning of the clinic/race.

This a two-part event consisting of a extended biathlon instructional clinic plus a sprint race. Participants can choose to take part in one or both portions of the day. We will start off in the morning with the clinic which will be limited in participation in order to insure participants receive plenty of coaching. In the late morning, we will move to the sprint race which is open to anyone regardless if they took part in the clinic (rifle safety/biathlon orientation clinic is required for all participants).

As an added bonus, Hilltop Ice Cream in Pompey (just south of the park - www.hilltoppompey.com) is giving us coupons for a small, soft serve ice-cream for the first 15 people who register!!

*Note that there will not be a youth paintball event this day due to the length of holding a clinic and race.
