Biathle is a sub sport of modern pentathlon invented to create opportunities for training the run and swim parts of pentathlon in real race conditions. It can also be seen as a sport in its own right. It bears close resemblance to aquathlon which also contains swimming and running but comes from triathlon sport. It should not be confused with biathlon.

Both biathle and aquathlon are still in their early stages. It might be logical to unite the two, though aquathlons are generally over somewhat longer distances than biathle events.
