Arlington’s Target Sprint Is this Sunday!

To Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club,

Sunday Arlington will hold the Target Sprint Biathlon shoot on the 200 yard range. The first heat is at 9:30 a.m., but we need help at 8:00 a.m. to help set up the targets, scoring tables, etc. We also need volunteers to help with the event and food preparation. We need willing hands to pitch in to make this a successful event. It was a lot of fun last fall.

It is a biathlon event, where you run 400 meters, shoot at 5 knock down targets from 10 meters with an air rifle, run 400 meters, shoot at 5 more targets and run 400 meters. Arlington has air rifles that participants can use for this event. Adults are welcome to participate.

The Target Sprint biathlon is extremely popular in Europe. It will be be an Olympic Event at the 2024 Olympic Games. Arlington is one of the few organizations sponsoring this event in the United States. The Civilian Marksmanship Program is sanctioning this event. It is a lot of fun. Come out and give it a try. Who knows, you might be our next Olympian.

You can sign up online if you wish to participate in this event.

If you can’t compete, please come out and give us a hand.

Thank you,

Rob Cowan
President, Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club
