The 2016 International Biathlon Union (IBU) Summer Biathlon World Championships will be held in Otepää in Estonia between August 25 and 28.
The event is staged during the period between the old season and the new one, which is scheduled to begin in just over three months' time.
The Tehvandi Sports Centre Stadium will be the host venue and has been improved and updated over the past decade, including a main building extension last year.
The Estonian Biathlon Federation is hosting the event for the second time in the last decade having also held the competition in 2007.
At that event, Kaisa Mäkäräinen of Finald won the senior sprint and pursuit while Ukraine's Vita and Valj Semerenko and Olena Pidhrushna took all six medals in the junior sprint and pursuit.
Organising Committee Chairman Aivar Nigol has commented on the preparations, which he claims are going according to plans.
"This is the second time Estonia is hosting the competition, meaning that we already have valuable experiences regarding the organisation of the Summer Biathlon World Championships," he said.
The Opening Ceremony of the competition will be held at the stadium on August 25.
Over 250 athletes from 24 nations are expected to participate in the three competitions this year.
Finland, Russia, Ukraine and the hosts Estonia will have the maximum amount of athletes - six - entered in each category.
Several famous faces are also expected for the competitions including Sochi 2014 Olympic bronze medallist Jean Guillaume Beatrix of France as well as Summer World Championships medallists, including 2015 pursuit champion Martin Otcenas of Slovakia.
