On Sunday, December 20, 2020, two Modern Pentathlon clubs based on the U.S.A. submitted a total of 25 new results for the 2020 Wolfpack Virtual Laser-Run, with their top three females and top three males being counted for team scoring purposes in the Seniors (Ages 21+) Elite Laser-Run event.
Peak Pentathlon took the lead over Wolfpack Pentathlon Club in the Seniors Women Elite Laser-Run event. A snow-covered course in Colorado did not stop three women from Peak Pentathlon from posting the top three times so far this year. Heidi Hendrick set a new meet record of 16:02.54. She was followed closely by Avery Niemann (16:18.87) and Naomi Ross (16:25.31).
In the Seniors Men Elite Laser-Run event, Wolfpack holds the lead over Peak Pentathlon, with Pablo Borceguin holding onto his previously-set meet record of 13:34.06.

Rene Felix and Kirt Iverson of Wolfpack posted times of 14:22.44 and 14:47.00, respectively, taking third and fourth on the leader board.
