Singletrack Shootout

July 2 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm

2023 Singletrack Shootout #1 – Run and Bike

It’s back:  the Singletrack Shootout! We’re planning to hold two races this summer: July 2 and September 10. Come give biathlon a try, no matter your experience level! It’ll be a fun morning of biathlon racing – running or mountain biking, your choice. A novice clinic will teach you everything you need to know to complete the four stage race. Club rifles will be provided.

Schedule –

Friday, June 30

Registration closes at 8:00pm. 100 total entries, across all categories. NO day-of-race registration. (While not a requirement to participate, Craftsbury Annual Members save on their registration! Read more about membership.)

Sunday, July 2nd

8:00-9:00am – Bib pick-up
8:15am – Exhibition race (by the Craftsbury Green Racing Project biathlon team)
9:00-9:45am – Novice safety talk and clinic (required if using a club rifle)
9:30am – Zero (for the experienced category – those bringing a rifle: points 13-15)
10:00am – Bike start (15 sec intervals)
10:30 – Noon – Running waves will start  (both novice and experienced category)

NOTE: The exact wave schedule is TBD, based on number of entries. Check your pre-race email for more info, but be prepared that your wave’s scheduled start can vary greatly depending on registration numbers.

Race format

All categories will complete a four stage biathlon race: lap, shoot, lap, shoot, lap, shoot, lap, shoot, lap. So that’s starting with a lap, four shooting stages, and ending with a lap. For each miss, there will be a short penalty lap to complete before returning to the course. This will be an interval start for bikes, and a wave start for runners.

In the context of this event kids are anyone ages 9-13 as of 31 December 2023.
