Biathlon is an Olympic winter sport which combines competitive, free technique cross-country skiing and small-bore rifle marksmanship. The combination of these two very contradictory disciplines in the same competition presents an athlete with a very demanding challenge.
Biathlon is a low impact, aerobic sport that can be enjoyed year round by athletes as young as 8 years old. The sport of biathlon is a safe and challenging way to develop fitness while having fun and learning new skills.
Lake Superior Biathlon is now entering its seventh season. Our practice sessions are held on a five lane shooting range owned by The Thunder Bay District Fish and Game Association, and have access to adjoining ski trails maintained by the Tapiola (Findlandia) Ski Club.
