Welcome to the web site of the Wessex Biathlon and Nordic Ski Club.

As a sport Biathlon represents a unique challenge, requiring a high level of physical fitness, with physical and mental control for accurate shooting under pressure. Cross-country (Nordic) skiing is an integral part of biathlon and widely recognized as one of the most effective forms of exercise. Due to a lack of reliable snow in England, roller-skiing is widely used to train cross-country skiers and is growing in popularity as a sport.

Summer Biathlon, the sister sport of Winter Biathlon combines either roller-skiing, running or mountain-biking with rifle shooting and is the format for most UK training.
