GATE Long-Range Shooting
COMPETITION DYNAMICS presents The
2012 COMBAT BIATHLON SERIES
Periodically held near Douglas, Wyoming

This match is a biathlon-style race that includes movement over land (run, hike, snowshoe, or ski based on weather conditions) in conjunction with practical shooting challenges. The intent of this match is to test the concept of combining use of martial force with hard physical challenges: The "Fitness Match."

Individuals will complete approx 5 miles of movement using a method appropriate to the weather and ground conditions, to include: running, hiking, slogging, snowshoeing, or skiing. The total distance will be broken up into laps or segments. Between each lap, the competitor will complete one or more practical shooting challenges that involve a full-power rifle, carbine, shotgun, or pistol. (Consult schedule for required guns each month.) There may also be additional physical tasks to accomplish such as burpees, dragging weight, lifts, etc.

The rest of the details are available on the
MATCH WEB SITE
