The Events

There are two separate disciplines that make up Para Nordic Skiing:

PARA CROSS-COUNTRY

PARA BIATHLON

Events:

Para Cross-Country

Athletes compete in short, middle and long distance, races over distances ranging from 2.5km to 20km.
Events:

Para Biathlon

Athletes compete in short, middle and long distance races on a 2km or 2.5km course, completing a different number of laps for each.

Race distances vary from 6km to 15km.
Events:

Para Biathlon

After each lap athletes must shoot at 5 targets from a range of 10 metres.

For each missed shot, an athlete will have to either ski an extra 'penalty loop' or have a time penalty added to their race time. Therefore to be successful athletes must be an accurate shot.
