UIPM 2018 Global Laser Run City Tour: New horizons for Argentina in Santa Rosa City
The feelgood factor from the 2018 Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires continued to be felt across Argentina when 250 young people took part in a Global Laser Run City Tour in Santa Rosa City, La Pampa.
Attended by Jorge Salas, President of the Argentina Modern Pentathlon Federation and South American Confederation, and well-known coach Rafael Acosta, the event was organised by a new pentathlon club and gained extensive media coverage.
At the end of the competition, it was confirmed that La Pampa will provide a new pentathlon programme for the Argentina federation.
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 fifth edition of which will take place in September 2019 in Budapest (HUN) in conjunction with the UIPM Pentathlon World Championships.
