9th BOINC Pentathlon | May 5th-19th 2018



What is this event all about?

The BOINC Pentathlon is a two week long BOINC team competition. Five different projects will be crunched over the two week period.

The BOINC Pentathlon consists of 5 disciplines:
  1. Marathon (CPU, 14 days)
  2. Sprint (CPU, 3 days)
  3. City Run (CPU, 5 days)
  4. Cross Country (GPU, 5 days)
  5. Swimming (CPU, 7 days)

The fun and challenging aspect of the Pentathlon is resource management. The 5 "disciplines" are run over a 14 day period, so each "discipline" overlaps another discipline. Figuring out what to run, and when to run it, is what makes the Pentathlon a unique and challenging BOINC points race.
  • Run-times and projects for each discipline are announced 5 days (Marathon and one other project) or 3 days (Sprint and two remaining disciplines) before their respective start via Blog (Feed , Twitter , Facebook ).
  • This allows some time to stock up on completed WU's, but it can also be dangerous if you forget to turn in the completed tasks before the deadline. It also adds another twist to resource management, if you are trying to stockpile WU's, while simultaneously running the current active disciplines.

Time for everyone to start working on their PC upgrades; you have less than a month
It will be fun to see how we do this year.

Sweet best competition of the year. Not sure I can buy any upgrades at this point but I have a little more than last year.
