RunArchery Cup will be the last event of the 2019 European Archery season.

Let's discover a little bit more this kind of competition, that will be held in Nove Mesto nad Metuji (CZE) next weekend, organized by SportKlub.

Run Archery combines cross-country running and archery.

Except for Compound division, every other type of bows is permitted.

The archers go through several run loops and after each loop, they shoot on 4 targets.

The shootings are for some of them on standing position, the others with a knee on the ground.

Every missed target causes a penalty loop for the archer which he must complete before entering the run loop in the normal course of competition.

Depending on the format of the race, the distance to run and the length of penalty loop are different.

The ranking of the competition is based on the time used by the archer, from the start line to the finish line (including all penalty times).

This is the race format used for the European Cup:
