The Path to Excellence begins one stride at a time!
Biathlon is a combination of cross-country skiing or running and marksmanship. It requires tremendous endurance and strength as well as skill and precision. Unpredictable elements including weather and wind conditions make this outdoor sport a fun and rewarding challenge that thousands of cadets participate in each year.
Cadet bi-athletes participate in a series of competitions at the local level that culminate in provincial / territorial competitions.
Cadets may practice in this physical activity on specific days throughout the year and may have a chance to compete against other squadrons.
