Laser Run

Another busy season for UIPM Sports in Egypt drew to a close with the latest UIPM Global Laser Run City Tour in Ain Sukhna on November 15.

The Madinty Club was the venue for the event and many families were on the entry list of almost 600 people across all age categories from Under-9 to Masters 60+.

On a beautiful sunny day the participants came from 23 different clubs and sports academies.

A spokesperson for the local organising committee said: “All of the families were very impressive, with some fathers and mother starting to participate as athletes.

“We as the LOC are pushing to be one big family.”

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 were 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 was incorporated into the Pentathlon World Championships for the first time in Budapest (HUN), where Laser Run also featured as a showcase sport at the 1st World Urban Games.

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