“Cadet biathlon develops power, endurance,
strength, skill, precision and calm under pressure for cadets. The sport is a combination of cross-country skiing and marksmanship. But it is not that simple. After skiing fast and hard, biathletes must calm themselves to take accurate and controlled shots at targets 50 meters away. In a single race cadet competitors can ski up to 7 kilometers and shoot 15 targets. For the cadet, the clock is always running. It’s action-packed, physically-demanding and extraordinary to watch.”
Biathlon runs on weekends from approximately Oct to February with the Regional Biathlon competition be held in February. Training takes place at various locations around Kanata and at Camp Fortune. Stay tuned to the website for more information.
