This is a complete calendar of the biathlon 2019-20. The schedule includes 9 world cup events and world championship.

Information about disciplines:

Sprint - the shortest race. It consists of three laps and two shootings. For women one lap - 2,5km, for men 3,3km. If biathlete misses shoot, he should run a penalty loop (50m). Sprint - the most common race of the season. Only Canmore and Ruhpolding hasn't it. By results of the sprint is formed next race - pursuit.

Pursuit - all biathletes started at the same lag and positions, they finished the previous sprint. In pursuit take part just top-60 from the sprint. The race includes 5 laps (2,5km for men and 2km for women) and 4 shooting. If biathlete misses, he also should run a penalty loop.

Individual race - oldest biathlon discipline. It's a very difficult race, because has the longest length - 20km for men, and 15 for women. It also has 5 laps and 4 shooting, but the main different - no penalty loops. If biathlete misses, he gets a penalty of 1 min, which is added to his time on the track.

Mass-start - one of the most popular races. There take part top-25 from total score list. And the best 5 biathletes of this stage. There at the same rules as in the pursuit. But all sportsmen starting at the same time. Usually, the decisive moment - it's the last 4th shooting. If someone misses on the last shooting, very difficult to regain lost time. 

Relay. Take part four biathlete from each county. There is a short distance, only 6km for women and 7,5 for men. Have to close all 5 targets. If biathlete misses one or more targets, he has an additional 3 cartridges for non-closed targets. If after it is non-closed targets, biathlete has to run penalty loops.

Mixed Relay. It has at the same rules as in the classic relay, but there take part two women and two men.

Single Mixed Relay. Similarly rules, but has a bit different. Take part only 1 man and 1 woman for each county. The order of performances is: Woman 2 laps - Men 2 laps - Women 2 laps - Men 3 laps (finishing). The penalty loop is two times shorter - 25m. It's the best race for "snipers".
