Air Arms Backs 2017 National Target Sprint Series For Second Year

After the resounding success of the 2016 National Target Sprint Series, Air Arms are proud to support the competition for the second consecutive year.

Organised by British Shooting, competitors run 400-metres before shooting 5 49.5mm targets with an Air Arms MPR rifle, which has been provided to the competition by Air Arms. Competitors then run for another 400-metres, shoot 5 more targets and complete a final 400-metre run.

Great for shooters who want to keep active or for those who enjoy running, the competition is split into age categories consisting of; Youth 11 – 15-year-olds, Junior 16 – 20-year-olds and Senior 21 years and over.

Air Arms Managing Director Claire West commented:

“Air Arms are pleased to be associated with British Shooting’s Target Sprint Series, as it offers a great opportunity for those who have never picked up a rifle to have a go at shooting. Air Arms are proud and honoured to be involved with the development of the Target Sprint discipline, and we very much look forward to the 2017 series.”
