You might be asking yourself, “What is the Primitive Snowshoe Biathlon?”

The Biathlon requires that participants run (or walk briskly) along a snowshoe trail through the woods and fire a muzzleloading rifle or musket at each of 5 targets on the trail. Runners are timed, fire 2 shots at each target and throw a tomahawk; each hit reduces the runner’s time by 5 minutes. In 2018, the Association partnered with the St. Lawrence -Lewis BOCES to replace its swinging iron targets for the annual event and they are still in great condition for this year’s Biathlon!

We hope to see you next year at the 2021 Biathlon!
