Pentathlon GB are expecting a full complement of 36 boys and 36 girls to make the start line. The venue will again be at the Great Britain Modern Pentathlon Academy at Hartpury College which now boasts a purpose built outdoor laser combined event range. See http://www.hartpury.ac.uk/Hartpury-Sport/Academies/Hartpury-Modern-Pentathlon-Academy a fantastic location and when running a full pentathlon has world class equine facilities, see http://www.hartpury.ac.uk/Hartpury-College/Hartpury-Equine/Facilities the location is always available for visiting teams to train and only 1 hour away from the GB National Training Centre at Bath.
The timing of this competition is calculated in the calendar to give Teams and Youth Athletes the opportunity for early in the competition year that vital international experience before the major championships. Other federations also now build this into their own selection policy.
It is a non profit making days competition run at minimum cost, the athletes are accommodated in very good hotel conditions, basically, arrive Friday afternoon in UK, compete all day Saturday and go home Sunday morning. No delays, no frills just a solid one day competition.
