2020 Wolfpack Virtual Laser-Run
Laser-Run is the last phase of Modern Pentathlon, which has been an Olympic sport since 1912. Laser-Run 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.

Events to be Contested
For one low entry-fee, you can compete in as many events as you want and as many times as you want during the competition window.
IMPORTANT: Competitors must obey all local laws and guidelines, including those pertaining to mask-wearing and social distancing.
If you do not have a laser pistol, simply take a 50-second break between intervals (that’s the maximum time you would lose if you could not make five hits on the target).
For the full experience, you can rent a laser pistol and target set from Wolfpack Pentathlon Club for a small fee (see the online registration form).
Competitors may compete in their own age division and/or any higher age divisions.
Example 1: a 40-year-old competitor can compete in the Seniors (ages 21-39) division and the Masters 40+ (ages 40-49) division, but cannot compete in the Juniors (under 21), Youth, or Masters 50+ and higher divisions.
Example 2: a 10-year-old competitor can compete in the U11, U13, U15, U17, U19, Juniors, and Seniors divisions, but cannot compete in the U9 or Masters divisions.
