After three events in the north of the country in 2017, the Global Laser-Run City Tour has now been launched in southern India after a successful edition in Chennai on June 22, 2018.

The Chennai Institute of Technology hosted 231 athletes spanning all age groups from Under-11 to Masters 50+, most of them sampling Laser-Run for the first time.

The event was organised by the Tamilnadu Modern Pentathlon Association under the aegis of the Modern Pentathlon Federation of India, with guidance from Namdev Shirgaonkar, Secretary General of the Asian Modern Pentathlon Confederation.

The VIP guest was Parthasarathy Sriram, Chairman of the Chennai Institute of Technology, who congratulated all the participants and urged local organisations to support and develop the Laser-Run movement within the region.

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.
