British Sporting Rifle Club

Running Boar

The Running Boar competition is similar to the Running Deer in as much as shooters fire at a ‘Siamese’ target as it crosses a gap in front of them.

The main differences between this and Running Deer competitions, however, are that the matches are all shot with 22 rimfire rifles only and that the speed of the runs can be either ‘slow’ or ‘fast’ depending on the match.

In ‘slow’ runs, the boar crosses a gap of 10m in 5 seconds, whilst for ‘fast’ runs the time is reduced to 2.5 seconds.


The club has two recently refurbished Running Boar ranges, both equipped with electronic scoring.
