Biathlon Alberta makes changes to COVID-19 policy.

By News

Biathlon Alberta has diligently followed the provincial government’s rules and regulations during the COVID-19 pandemic. With the latest changes to the public requirements around COVID-19, we are adjusting our protocols for the last two Calforex Cup events of the 2021-2022 season.

  • Effective immediately, participants (athletes, coaches, volunteers and officials) of Calforex Cup events will no longer have to provide a negative PCR test or a QR code for proof of vaccination to participate in our events.
  • We will move from an outdoor mask mandate to a mask recommendation for outside venues. Masks will be required to be worn indoors. We ask for your respect for differing comfort levels around outdoor masking. 
  • The digital self-assessment questionnaire will continue to be sent out before each race day and needs to be completed by all registered participants as it is mandated by the provincial government (until at least March 1, 2022).

Biathlon Alberta will continue to work with the provincial government and will continue to adjust our COVID-19 related policies based on their guidance. We would like to thank our members that have complied with all our policies throughout the 2021-2022 season and appreciate your ongoing patience and kindness as we continue to navigate this ever-changing situation.

The 2021-22 Hosting Policy will be adjusted in the following days to reflect these changes.

UPDATE! Calforex Cup #5 is moving to Camrose!

By News

Biathlon Alberta would like to thank the Camrose Nordic Ski Club for stepping up and hosting only 3 weeks after their last race another Calorex Cup event.

The Chair of the Camrose Organizing Committee contacted Biathlon Alberta and expressed interest in hosting Calforex Cup #5 after we had to announce the cancellation of the event in Grande Prairie.

Calforex Cup #5 will now be hosted in Camrose on February 5 & 6, 2022.

The race invitation and the zone 4 link will be posted early next week!

Calforex Cup #5 in Grande Prairie is cancelled!

By News

Biathlon Alberta is working on an alternate location for the same weekend.

The Organizing Committee of the Calforex Cup #5 in Grande Prairie is cancelled. The Organizing Committee was not able to secure enough volunteers for the race weekend due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The number of volunteers that have signed up so far is about 50% lower than in previous years and the organizers don’t think that it is realistic that they will be able to fill all positions in time to provide the participants a great race weekend.

Biathlon Alberta is trying to secure an alternate location for the weekend of February 5-6, 2022.

A final decision will be announced by the end of this week.
