Laser-Run is the last phase of Modern Pentathlon, an Olympic sport since 1912. It is an event in its own right and provides a thrilling and accessible introduction to the whole family of multi-sports, such as Modern Triathlon, Modern Tetrathlon, and Modern Pentathlon itself. Laser-Run is suitable for all ages, genders, and abilities–with no previous experience needed–but also presents a unique opportunity for keen runners to add a new dimension to their race.
