What is Laser Run
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 an 800 meter circuit, returning to the shooting range for round two of the shoot. They complete this circuit four times alternating between running and shooting to a total of 3.2 Kilometers and 20 direct hits on the target. Depending on age categories the length and distance may vary.

This sport is extremely fun and adaptable and socially inclusive so everything from the distance run to the shooting can be shortened or lengthened depending upon the participants skill level.

The real skill is not burning yourself out on the run so you can still shoot straight…. But still running fast enough to win. Could you do it?
