Kenora Nordic and Biathlon Club athletes attended the fourth biathlon race of the season at Falcon Lake on January 28th, 2018. Sunday’s race followed a biathlon open house on Saturday afternoon at the Falcon Lake range where interested nordic skiers were able to try out their shooting skills.
Race format was a Sprint event, which requires two trips into the range to shoot and skiing three circuits on the trails. Racers had to ski an extra penalty loop for every missed shot.
Kenora athletes put to good use the training received on the range this fall at the Lake of the Woods Gun Club (lwgc.ca).
