For Woman its 6.2 miles. While they race they have to carry a bore rifle. They weigh 7.7 pounds. That would suck to carry that while racing. There are four shooting bouts. You have to hit five targets each shooting round. The target range is 160 feet. Each miss is a penalty loop which is 150 meters. The prone position target diameter is 1.8 inches.
