The Vancouver Island Biathlon Club is holding a race at their Mount Washington facility on Sept. 13.

Are you looking for an opportunity to try out an exciting Olympic sport? Look no further!

On Saturday, Sept. 13 the Vancouver Island Biathlon Club will be hosting a summer biathlon race at our facility on Mount Washington. The facility is located just past the Raven Nordic Lodge.

No experience? No problem! Our instructors will provide a safety course and will answer any questions you might have. This race is a great introduction to the safe and exciting sport of biathlon, suitable for ages 11 and older. All you need is a bike sturdy enough to handle the gravel course and you are set! We supply everything else.

The race will take place between 9:15 a.m. and 1 p.m., with separate age group categories. For more details and registration, visit our website at www.vibiathlon.ca, or write us at vibiathlonclub@gmail.com.

“We look forward to seeing you there!” a spokesperson said.
