About

Biathlon is a multisport discipline that involves running and swimming over various distances for the different age groups. (See points table for age groups and distances.) These two separate disciplines take place at different times on the same day. All athletes will first run their event on the track and after ALL the running numbers have been completed all athletes will swim their events in either a 25m or 50m pool.

Times are recorded for each athlete and points are then allocated according to the times recorded. The ideal will be to achieve at least 1000 points for the running discipline and 1000 points for the swimming discipline to then have a total of at least 2000 points.

• Running
For every 1 second slower than the target time, 5 points will be subtracted from your 1000 points, and for every 1 second faster than the target time, 5 points will be added to your 1000 points.

• Swimming
For every 1 second slower than the target time, 10 points will be subtracted from your 1000 points, and for every 1 second faster than the target time, 10 points will be added to your 1000 points. For athletes swimming 50m, the swim adjustment will be 16 points per second.

• Age Calculation
Your age on 31 August – the day before the start of the season (1 September to 31 August) – determines your age group for the rest of the season. If you were 17 on 31 August (the day before start of the current season) you will compete as an under 19 for this season (as you are not UNDER 17 anymore). If you were 16 on that day you will compete as an under 17 for the season.

• Bonus Points
Bonus points are only awarded to Jnr Vet and older athletes: Jnr Vets get 8 points for each year older than the entry year. Vets & Snr Vets get 15 points for each year older than the entry year. Masters get 15 points for each year older than the entry year.

• Combined Points
Run points + Swim points + Bonus points = 2000 points is minimum combined score that is normally the prerequisite to be eligible for the KZN team.
