Come and Try it Biathle Training at the Beach 2008

Training for Biathle will take place on the beach at Greenhill Gardens, Weymouth Seafront, Dorset. The training is open to all athletes who wish to come along and have a go at a Biathle or for the more experienced athletes to do some specific Biathle training for future events. Novices from schools and clubs are encouraged to come along as there will be talks on training and other events organised by Pentathlon GB.
