Races — Biathlon is Back in 2017

I have written about biathlons previously. Recently, I got a list of races and dates in the Northeast. Many of these are skiing, but I figured endurance athletes might appreciate them all the same.

Get excited:  dates have been set for 2017 Pemi Biathlon races!

Events may be cancelled due to weather, so please be in touch if you have any questions before driving over.  If you anticipate bringing a group of 5 or more participants that need to use club rifles and ammo, please be in touch before the race so that we can prepare.
