The Biathlon Russian Cup and Biathlon Russian Championship have a long-standing tradition in Krasnoyarsk. Back in 1964, Krasnoyarsk hosted the RSFSR Biathlon Championship. Now, the best biathletes from all over Russia travel to the Biathlon Academy Multifunctional Complex in Krasnoyarsk every March to decide who are the Russian Champions in each discipline.

Krasnoyarsk athletes have never come away from the home stage of the national championship without any medals. The last time a competition of this level was at the Biathlon Academy Multifunctional Complex in March 2016 and works began in the summer of the very same year to refurbish the sports facility in preparation for the upcoming Winter Universiade Krasnoyarsk 2019.
