After the success of the first national laser run championships at Yate Outdoor Sports Complex in August, moves are being made to set up regular training camps at the centre.

Laser Run is the final element of Modern Pentathlon, which is part of the Olympics.  It involves running and shooting at targets and has now been created as a new competition by the governing body. 

Phillip Hobbs is the laser run coach for PentathlonGB, he is raising funds to provide a laser kit for the South Gloucestershire area.

It will be used for training and taster sessions not only at the Outdoor Sports Complex but at other community organisations. 

He’s also looking for sponsors that would back Yate as the Regional training venue. 

A fundraising site has been set up at https://www.gofundme.com/south-west-pentathletes-laser-fund and Philip can be contacted at prhcoaching@outlook.com
