Biathlon club hosting relay race

Public invited to join the fun March 23 at Mount Washington


The ski season may be drawing to a close, but why let it end without a bang? Come over to the Vancouver Island Biathlon Club’s facilities for a spring relay race.

This race will take place at the Mount Washington Nordic facilities on March 23. Practice and safety training will commence at 9 a.m. followed by the race at 11 a.m. The price is $20 cash for non-members and includes refreshments, use of a rifle, and ammunition.

Registration is available by e-mail until March 21 at

This race will combine cross-country skiing with the careful precision of rifle marksmanship. Do not let a lack of

experience deter you from a great adventure on the mountain.

All you need to bring are your skis and your enthusiasm. Our trained coaches will give you instruction on shooting, provide rifles and ammunition, and will ensure that the race is

conducted in a safe and supportive environment.

Afterwards, there will be a barbecue and prizes. Please note that a trail pass is required to partake in the race.

If you have any questions, send an e-mail to or see our website for more details at
