Soldier Hollow Fall Festival & U.S. Biathlon World Cup Team Trials

Soldier Hollow, Midway UT

October 8 -16, 2020

This is a small affair this year with both the Nordic and Biathlon National Teams having to cancel their fall camps in Utah. But, there are some western athletes who will join us for the week to train and race. Think of this as a staycation training camp with lots of options for both XC & Biathlon! Plan on all sessions beginning at 9am and 3:30pm unless otherwise communicated. Take a look at our Fall Festival Covid policy at so you’re not surprised by anything.  


Team SoHo athletes – Please make an effort to attend as many sessions as you can. Racing on Tuesday is required for Comp Team athletes! We’ll have options available for those who can’t race the Senior Distances. Let me know which sessions you plan to attend in addition to our regularly scheduled Tuesday/Thursday practices. There is no additional cost for the extra session – I only ask that you let us know when you’re coming and then make sure you’re there as workouts are finetuned for the total number of confirmed athletes.

The Biathlon schedule is as follows:


Sunday AM: Pre-race @ 9am


Monday AM: Race - Zero @ 9, Sprint Race at 10.


Monday PM: 3:30 Easy Combos w/ technique focus (guest coach Olympic Biathlete Sara Studebaker-Hall)


Tuesday AM: Precision shooting @ 9am (guest coach Eric Reynolds, retired Special Forces shooter & biathlete).


Tuesday PM: Race – Zero @ 3:30, Sprint Race at 4:30 (it’s must that you arrive by 3 if you need to get a rifle). If you have your own rifle, be on the range ready to go at 3:30.


Wednesday AM: Off or activity of choice (range closed to live fire - pillar foundations for range shade structures being drilled with heavy machinery)
