Summer Biathlon hid out from the pandemic last year, but we are trying to sneak out of the woods to run and shoot again in 2021. Hopefully everyone has fared well in staying healthy.
Since our Altoona Summer Biathlon is the first race of the season, we are making plans for a safe race. The two other race venues, Nescopeck and Oil Creek State Park are to be announced soon. Tentative dates are Nescopeck-July 17 and Oil Creek August 14th (dates corresponding to past events).
Check out the short article on the 25th year of PA Biathlon and plan to get involved. The Altoona race registration form can be found here also. Out of state entries have arrived. We will cap the field at 60 in number so get the legs in shape for the Gun Club hill and hone those rifle sights to precision. 
Should you be worried about handling club rifles, you may wish to bring your own .22 with 2 ammo clips ( no semi-automatics of course). We will use no mats if the weather is dry. You may wish to bring a mat of some nature to use for your own hygienic satisfaction.
Looking to see you at one of the events.

Run Fast; Shoot Straight; Stay Healthy
