Harrogate Sisters To Represent Great Britain At European And World Laser Run Championships
Isabelle and Olivia Barley
Two Harrogate sisters have been selected to represent Great Britain at the forthcoming European and World Laser Run Championships.

Isabelle and Olivia Barley are both members of the Harrogate Harriers and attend the Yorkshire Pentathlon Monthly Laser Club night, hosted at Ashville College.

The competitions – which will be held at the end of this month and the beginning of September respectively – involve athletes alternating between shooting a laser pistol and running.

Athletes start together with a short run into the shooting range and their allocated shooting bay. Using a laser pistol, athletes shoot at their designated target as many times as it takes to register five successful hits. Each successful hit is represented by a green light.

After five successful hits or 50 seconds (whichever comes first), runners can leave the range and begin their first run before returning to the same range, bay and pistol, for their next shoot. After their final shoot, competitors complete their last running loop before crossing the finish line.

The girls’ selection was confirmed at the recent British Championships, held in Solihull, where Olivia claimed a silver medal and Isabelle finished in eighth place.

Duncan Archer, Head of Swimming & Athletics at Ashville College, said: “We are delighted for Isabelle and Olivia, and everyone here at Ashville is wishing them the very best of luck as they compete in the European and World Laser Run Championships.

“Sport plays a significant part in the of life of our students, and us hosting the Yorkshire Pentathlon Monthly Laser Club night is extremely popular with not only our pupils, but pupils from across the District.”
