World Laser Run - Dublin 2018 -29 & 30th Sept

More than 400 athletes of all ages from 28 countries arrived in Dublin, capital of the Republic of Ireland, ahead of the start of two days of action in the sports grounds of the historic Trinity College.

Ireland’s Natalya Coyle and Arthur Lanigan-O’Keeffe, ranked No.6 and No.3 respectively in the world, did not compete over the weekend but in an ambassadorial capacity they promoted the benefits of hosting UIPM a major competition in Ireland. 

 UIPM President Dr Klaus Schormann hailed the growth in popularity of Laser Run as the sport continues to surge thanks to the Global Laser Run City Tour and the World Championships and numerous other development events across the world. In 2019, Laser Run will be part of the programme of the 1st Urban Games.

What is Laser Run

Participants will start with a short sprint to the shooting range. From there, using a laser pistol, they shoot their designated target until they register 5 successful hits, or for 50 seconds, whichever comes first. They will then leave the range and run an 800 meter circuit, returning to the shooting range for round two of the shoot. 

They complete this circuit four times alternating between running and shooting to a total of 3.2 Kilometers and 20 direct hits on the target. Depending on age categories the length and distance of the run may vary. 

This sport is extremely fun and adaptable and socially inclusive so everything from the distance run to the shooting can be shortened or lengthened depending upon the participants skill level.

The real skill is not burning yourself out on the run so you can still shoot straight…. But still running fast enough to win. Could you do it?

Laser Run at Flavours of Fingal.  June  23-24 June 2018
Laser Run Swords

“The Family Relay was the surprise hit of the day and being bold enough to try new things like that will help us grow. There's not a lot of sporting activities out there for families so that could be a huge market to take Laser-Run into.

“Pentathlon in Ireland is really pushing new ground, emerging as a commercial force with a high profile this year as evidenced by the fact that we had a regular slot on the most popular TV show in the country recently."

The profile of UIPM Sports in Ireland has been given a major boost with the involvement of the Olympic pentathletes, Natalya Coyle and Arthur Lanigan-O’Keeffe, in the primetime TV show Operation Transformation.
