Hi All KZN Modern Pentathletes (Modern Pentathlon not to be confused with Biathle)
We will be hosting the 2016 KZN Modern Pentathlon Champs over the weekend of 4/5 and 6 March in Durban.
The SA Modern Pentathlon Champs will be held in Bloemfontein on the weekend of 8 and 9 April in Bloemfontein.
Please note participants must be SAMPA registered athletes (entry form attached)
Modern Pentathlon consists of the following disciplines
Swimming :- distances vary by age group – from 50m to 200m,
Fencing (epee) :- athletes compete against each other in a round robin format,
Show Jumping :- (this is a non compulsory event) those not doing the showjumping fall into a separate category called a tetrathlon
Combined event :- this is the final event which consists of a laser – run event where athletes will compete over various distances with a run and shoot component.
In order for us to plan properly and finalise an event schedule we need to have entries in by 24 February (please see the attached entry form.)
For those that want to come and watch or join in in some of the disciplines this is a great opportunity to see what Modern Pentathlon is all about.
