Club History - Biathlon and Biathle
The Club has had good connections with Crowborough runners where many members have trained and in 2014 the Club became affiliated to Pentathlon GB to enable its members to compete in Biathlon competitions, which are combined swim/ run events.
A series of qualifying competitions are held throughout the year with the top ranking competitors being invited to compete in both the British Championships and the British Schools Championships.
James and Matt McCarthy entered the Club’s first competition with the 2014 South East Regional Biathlon British schools event with James becoming South East Regional Champion. In 2015 based on outstanding performances in the British Championships both James and Matt were selected for Team GB and took part in the Biathle World Championships in Georgia in September 2015 were they achieved an amazing bronze medal for GB in their age group.
