Global City Laser Run Event

Hunt, TX 20 June 2019

Hunt, TX -On a Summer day in the Hill Country, this year’s second Global City Laser Run Tour in the United States arrived into the community of Hunt, TX.  This was the second time the community of Hunt has hosted a Global City Laser Run Tour and based on the 280 finishers and 23 separate races it was by all accounts a very successful day for the sport of Modern Pentathlon.  Hunt which boasts many family retreats and kids summer camps welcomed the GCLR Tour wholeheartedly and came out excited to participate. Camp Stewart was the host location for the event and proved to be a great partner with USA Pentathlon and the UIPM.

“I’m very pleased with the participation this year.  We had many boys and girls come out and try this exciting sport in the Texas Sun!  This event shows the great level of interest here in the United States for athletes of all ages to come on out and try the sport of Laser Run” said Dan Browne, Laser Run Director and USA Pentathlon team coach.

The word is definitely getting out about the upcoming Laser Run World Championships in Budapest, Hungary in September.  “I had quite a few kids approach me after their respective races asking me about participating in the Laser Run World Championships.  I am anticipating that we’ll field a strong contingent of athletes who will take a second step in being introduced to Modern Pentathlon through the inclusion of Laser Run at this year’s World Championships.” Commented Browne.

The Hunt community is already looking forward to and making plans for the return of a Global City Laser Run tour next year.
