Global Laser-Run City Tour 2018: Kampala (UGA) shows true colours
In bright blue and orange T-shirts, groups of schoolchildren made history as the first people in Uganda to compete in Laser-Run during the Global Laser-Run City Tour in Kampala on July 7.
The colourful scene was testament to the progress of the Uganda Modern Pentathlon Federation, which was created only recently in April 2018.
Not only did schoolchildren take part in the GLRCT at St John Baptist Primary School Kabalagala, showing great determination to master the shooting format and complete their laps of the the circuit, there were also senior races for the men and women in attendance.
The UIPM Global Laser-Run City Tour was created in 2017 to deliver an exciting, dynamic and fun competition to participants of all ages and offer them an entry point to UIPM Sports.
The Global LRCT took place in parks, stadiums and iconic urban venues in 60 cities around the world in 2017, with more than 15,000 participants. There are about 100 events scheduled in 2018.
Laser-Run is a development sport of UIPM but aspiring athletes of all ages also have the chance to compete for global titles at the UIPM Laser-Run World Championships, which are taking place in Dublin (IRL) on September 28-30, 2018.
