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:
- Marathon (14 days)
- Sprint (3 days)
- City Run (5 days)
- Cross Country (5 days)
- Javelin (5x 1 day, only each team's third best daily score counts)
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 one other project) before their respective start. Each day of Javelin Throw will be announced three days in advance. Announcement times for all of the disciplines except the Marathon will vary to account for geographic differences in the teams. Announcements can be found on the, main page, via Blog, or Feed.
- 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.
