THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED

Summer Festival Week and U.S. Biathlon Rollerski Championships,

August 3-9

 
Update May 2020: A special message regarding Summer Festival planning
Currently, we are still planning on being able to run Summer Nationals races August 8-9th at the Ethan Allen Training Site in Jericho, VT. We are monitoring the development of state guidelines and National Guard policies in regards to social distancing and how that could impact this event. We will have our next update regarding event planning available by July 1st. 

In light of current circumstances, we also want to make it clear that we are not able to guarantee the lodging & food package for biathlon clubs training on-site in the week leading up to the races. We may need to reduce the number of slots available to meet distancing guidelines, or require that all athletes stay off-site in private lodging. Daily training access to the Jericho range (and festival activities) are currently still an option for USBA member clubs. 
 
The annual U.S. Biathlon Summer Rollerski National Championships will be held August 8-9th in Jericho, Vermont this year. Club teams can bring their athletes to train on-site in the week leading up to the competitions as part of the Summer Biathlon Festival week August 3-9th. This festival provides optional educational opportunities and pre-arranged meals & accommodation package clubs to support clubs in hosting their own unique camps on a crowded, busy range! 
 
Information for club teams about booking space for this year's training festival.
