Laser Run lights up Budapest Urban Games in Hungary
Laser Run made a successful debut at the Budapest Urban Games as the Hungarian Modern Pentathlon Association progressed its preparations for the 2019 Laser Run World Championships.
A competition was held with one professional and three open categories, and almost 100 participants took the opportunity to sample UIPM’s fastest-growing development sport in the historic surroundings of the Citadella.
The iconic building sits at the top of Gellért Hill, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The HMPA is working on a promotional campaign to draw attention of Budapest’s people to the Pentathlon Festival in 2019, which will consist of the UIPM Pentathlon World Championships and Laser Run World Championships running alongside each other.
The Budapest Urban Games featured individual and Mixed Relay Laser Run races as well as running, swimming, ‘streetball’ and ‘grundfoci’ (3x3 football).
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.
