Description & Services
Information  
 
Biathlon is an Olympic winter sport, which combines competitive, free-technique cross-country skiing and small-bore rifle marksmanship.  
 
Several other competition forms of movement and shooting - such as ski archery, snowshoe Biathlon, running and shooting and mountain bike Biathlon - are also normally included in the general category of Biathlon.  
 
The word competition is used in Biathlon instead of race because it is not only a race but a combination of two different competitive activities. 
 
Our mission is to promote, develop and govern all aspects of Biathlon in Nova Scotia to the highest standard of excellence.
Eligibility Ages: 8 year(s) and up 
 
Biathlon Bears is a community Biathlon sport program, under the umbrella of Biathlon Canada, and geared for youth aged 8 - 14 years of age. 
 
Regular Biathlon Programming is age 15 and above.
