Welcome to the home of Modern Pentathlon GB, East Region which covers Essex, Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridge, Northants, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire.
The Region exists to encourage new members and support them through grass roots to the English Talent Program and beyond.
Modern pentathlon is an multi-discipline sport, allowing you to challenge yourself while experiencing the exciting disciplines that make up the event. You do not need to have already mastered any of the disciplines to get started. For more information on what Modern Pentathlon can offer you, please look at our About our Sport page.
Another successful (and our biggest) training day on Sat 28th Oct, well done to all those that took part, many of them for the first time, we hope to see you again. The date of the next is as yet uncertain because of a mix of coach availability and clashes with PentathlonGB competitions. Keep checking this space and watching twitter @eastpentathlon for updates.
We hold training days each month in Hemel Hempstead, roughly following the same format of; 2 hours of Run / Shoot training & drills. (During the summer this is at the Athletics track. Autumn, Winter, Spring we hold this at sportsspace either on the all weather pitch or in the sports hall)
A quick relocate down the hill to the pool and an hour of Swimming and Laser Shooting pool side.
Dry off, change and into the hall for 2 hours of fencing.
If you would like to take part, please contact us via the contact page.
Well done to everyone that took part on Saturday. Despite a dull start to the day weather wise, the rain held off to allow a host of incredible effort from all the athletes both on the track and in the pool.
We would also like to say a huge thank you to the volunteers on the day without whom the competition would not have been possible.
We encourage and prepare our members to compete in a number of competitions across all disciplines within Pentathlon to gain essential experience.
Over the last 12 months we have seen our members compete in fencing competitions and leagues, our own Biathlon, Triathlon and Tetrathlon, other region’s championship as well as National rankings and championships. A small number of our members have also been selected for international appearances at all levels.
