#LaserHomeRun information page
Welcome to the UIPM #LaserHomeRun information page!
#LaserHomeRun is a new concept that enables participants of all ages to add focus to their home training regimes, keep their skills sharp and enjoy the thrill of online competition.
Laser Run is UIPM’s fastest-growing development sport and the easiest to organise – a point that the governing body hopes to underline by exploring the popularity of a mass-participation virtual gathering.
The format of #LaserHomeRun is simple – in each round entrants must complete a series of exercises before hitting five targets with a laser pistol in the fastest possible time. UIPM Technical Officials will be appointed to make sure entries are valid.
There will be female and male categories across six age groups – from Under 11 to Masters 60+. Qualification rounds featuring up to 15 competitors will take place on May 4-5 and the finals will follow on May 7 – streamed live on UIPM TV.
Don't forget to register for free on the UIPM TV before the final day to be able to watch!
