The second annual Hanson Hills/XC Ski HQ Paintball Biathlon Series welcomes men, women, and kids to compete in this 2-day event, combining cross country skiing with paintball target shooting. Here’s how it works: adult racers ski a 1-2km loop (kids go 0.5-1km), then get five shots at a target with a paintball gun. This is repeated five times, and then the racers cross the finish line. For each target hit, we deduct 10 seconds from the skiers’ finish time. It’s a total blast! Saturday’s racing will take place at Hanson Hills, and Sunday’s race and awards will be at Cross Country Ski Headquarters. Can’t come for both days? Don’t worry, there will be prizes for single-day winners too! Paintball guns provided.
