Para Pentathlon

Following the success of the Para Laser Run event at the UIPM 2022 Laser Run World Championships in Lisbon (POR), the stage is set for an even bigger showcase of UIPM Para Sports in 2023.

The local organising committee of the UIPM 2023 Pentathlon and Laser Run World Championships in Bath (GBR) are working hard behind the scenes to make sure the event builds on previous years and is truly accessible to all athletes. With a large number of para-athletes competing, it is set to be a truly world class event. 

If you have para athletes in your National Federation or local club, this is a great opportunity for them to enter and participate in a global competition. NF members are also encouraged to reach out to para athletes with an athletics background in their country or club. 

Andrew Collings, Chair of the UIPM Para Pentathlon Commission, said: “The key to the success of the UIPM Para Sports movement is having a large grassroots base of athletes.

“As the starting discipline on the UIPM Para event pyramid, Para Laser Run it is a great place for para athletes to start on their Modern Pentathlon journey.

“What’s more, growing the sport at the grassroots and ensuring that the Laser Run is accessible to all will help grown the number of para athletes competing in other disciplines.

“Being prepared and organized is the key – so reach out now.  With just under six months to go, guides for para athletes and fundraising can be undertaken.”
