The Modern Pentathlon is an expanding sport involving a breadth of sporting disciplines, and with the 2020 Summer Olympics on the horizon the next couple of years are a crucial time for preparation and training.
While traditional pentathlon disciplines are running, shooting, swimming, horse riding and cycling, Biathle offers the perfect introduction to multisports with a simpler run/swim/run format. Lower barriers to entry allow more participants at a grass-roots level to help develop the potential next generation of Olympians.
Following a successful launch last year MotorEasy is proud to continue supporting Pentathlon GB's rapidly growing Biathle Series. Our continued support has enabled Pentathlon GB to advance its successful six race GB Biathe Race Series.
Pentathlon Biathle Discipline
Using the two basic physical disciplines of running and swimming in a continuous run/swim/run format, Biathle can be done by anyone without the need for specialist equipment and training. It's open to all from seven years of age through to 70 with the potential of competing at the World Championships.
"MotorEasy provides different solutions for repairs or general maintenance."
Duncan McClure Fisher, founder of MotorEasy, said: “We are proud to continue our support of the Biathle Series. In biathle a mixed skillset is required for the different sports. In turn, MotorEasy provides different solutions for car repairs or general maintenance. Modern motorists don’t have the time or inclination to deal with the hassle of maintaining their cars so we remove that burden, leaving more time to focus on the things they enjoy like sport, spending time with friends or family.”
Howard Jones, Pentathlon GB Biathle Director said "It's with great pleasure we welcome MotorEasy as the supporter of the 2018 GB Biathle Race Series for the second year running. Pentathlon GB Biathle were excited to kick off the season off in April and entrants are already looking positive for the year ahead."
