UIPM 2019 Global Laser Run City Tour: Fond memories for all in Sachkhere (GEO)
A busy season of UIPM Sports in Georgia continued with the first Global Laser Run City Tour to be held in the city of Sachkhere.
More than 260 people took part in racing at Chikhura's central stadium having come from Tbilisi, Sachkhere, Rustavi, Poti, Gori and Chiatura.
A spokesperson for the local organising committee said: "The event was very exciting and friendly and attended by many spectators who will take away fond memories, as will the parents and athletes.
“I hope this Global Laser Run City Tour will have an impact with more children becoming involved in Modern Pentathlon.”
It was in Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, that the GLRCT was born in 2017 and Georgia’s next event will be held in Rustavi city on 30 June 2019.
Also in June 2019 there will be a Biathle-Triathle National Tour in Tbilisi.
The GLRCT was created 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.
