Laser Run World Championships 2018

Laser Run World Championships 2018

The Laser Run World Championships will be held in Trinity College Dublin in September 28th-30th, 2018 and will see over 450 competitors, from over 20 countries, compete in this exciting event.

Participants will start with a short sprint to the shooting range. From there, using a laser pistol, they shoot their designated target until they register 5 successful hits, or for 50 seconds, whichever comes first. They will then leave the range and run a circuit, returning to the shooting range for round two of the shoot. They complete this circuit four times alternating between running and shooting.

Why not come along on Saturday 29th September to see Irish and international athletes compete in the championships and see how it’s done.
