UIPM 2018 Global Laser Run City Tour: It’s crossover time in Hurghada (EGY)
A day after the conclusion of the UIPM Biathle/Triathle World Championships, the Egyptian Modern Pentathlon Federation (EFMP) gave participating athletes another chance to compete in the Global Laser Run City Tour.
The event in Sahl Hasheesh, near Hurghada, attracted a remarkable total of 420 athletes, including a delegation from Great Britain and one participant from Italy eager to demonstrate their ability to cross over between the various UIPM development sports.
A spokesperson for the local organising committee said: “The use of the existing Biathle/Triathle World Championships venue for the Global Laser Run City Tour meant that we were able to run a very efficient and fast event.
“The venue and organisation were very good and we hope to see even more participants next year in the Global Laser Run City Tour in Egypt.”
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, the fourth edition of which took place in September 2018 in Dublin (IRL).
