Laser Run is the exhilarating finale to the Olympic sport of Modern Pentathlon with athletes required to alternate between shooting a laser pistol and running in a race to the finish line.
This last phase of the Olympic Sport has now been adapted to form a stand-alone event suitable for all ages, levels and abilities, with no previous experience needed. Laser Run offers a fantastic entry point to multi-sports and tests multiple characteristics with the challenge of having stamina and speed for the run, along with focus and composure for the shoot.
Modern Pentathlon was added to the Olympic Games in 1912 and also includes fencing, swimming and equestrian show jumping. The shooting and running elements that were originally treated separately have since been combined and become known as Laser Run.
Stephanie Cook won the first ever Olympic individual women’s event back in 2000, one of seven Team GB medals in the sport. An annual World Championships has also been held since 1949 with Samantha Murray our most recent winner back in 2014.
