Laser-Run is back with a bang in Portugal
The Portuguese Modern Pentathlon Federation organized its first UIPM Laser-Run City Tour in Covilhã on June 4, 2017.
It proved to be a successful return for Laser-Run to Portugal after the great success of the 2016 Laser-Run World Championship in Lisbon, and marked a positive start to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic cycle for the hosting PMPF.
The local municipality of Covilhã held a celebration of sport with Laser-Run City Tour topping the bill among other open-air activities at Pavilhão da Associação Nacional dos Industriais dos Lanifícios.
The culmination of the LRCT was a Mixed Relay for all ages and genders: a total of 23 teams took part and brought excitement and emotion to the crowd following the competition.
The next LRCT in Portugal will take place in the city of Alenquer on June 25.
