On February 28 and March 1, the Vikings Biathlon Team is excited to host Ole’s Sloppy Spring Relay! We are expecting biathletes from all over Alberta who are looking to ski, shoot, and have fun.

In a relay race, the participants perform as a team of four, with at least one man and one woman per team. Each member of the team will ski their entire race, which includes two shooting bouts and three skiing loops. For every missed shot the biathlete will have to ski a penalty loop, but since it is a relay race they will have three extra bullets per shooting bout. Once a team member has finished their race, it is time to tag off and send the next person off on the trails. The team completes the race when their last team member crosses the finish line.

It takes a lot of people to run a biathlon race and we are always looking for volunteers, and help from the community is always welcome. The weekend promises to be action packed, fun, and as the name implies hopefully not too cold. So come out to the Camrose Biathlon Shooting Range for a chance to see biathlon in action and enjoy the fresh air watching this exciting event on the beautiful Camrose ski trails!
