Belarus, which has a proud of record of producing champion pentathletes, will become the latest country to embrace UIPM’s fastest-growing development project in the coming months.

Preparations are underway for three instalments of the UIPM Global Laser Run City Tour in the beautiful cities of Brest (May 11-12), Grodno (June 23) and Vitebsk (September 8).

In order to ensure many people from communities across the country are able to get their first taste of Laser Run during the events, the Modern Pentathlon Federation of Belarus has undertaken various promotional activities.

From April 16 to 19, the XVIII Republican exhibition of scientific and methodological literature, pedagogical experience and creativity of students was held in Minsk and young Belarusian athletes gave laser shooting lessons to visitors on the main avenue of the capital of Belarus.

Akim Gnedtchik, winner of European gold at Under 11 level in 2018 as well as two silver medals at the UIPM 2018 Biathle/Triathle World Championships in Hurghada (EGY), also took part.

The Global Laser Run City Tour was created in 2017 to provide an entry point to UIPM Sports for people of all ages in urban communities around the world.

Another 100 cities have been selected in 2019 as hosts of the GLRCT or the Biathle/Triathle National Tour. The full calendar can be viewed at the UIPM website, where you can also find more information on UIPM’s various multi-discipline sports.

In September, the UIPM Laser Run World Championships will be incorporated into the Pentathlon World Championships for the first time in Budapest (HUN), where Laser Run is also on the programme for the 1st World Urban Games.

In December, Laser Run and Triathle will both feature for the first time in the 30th Southeast Asian (SEA) Games in the Philippines.
