50 metre running target or 50 metre running boar is an ISSF shooting event, shot with a .22-calibre rifle at a target depicting a boar moving sideways across a 10 metre wide opening. It was devised as a replacement for 100 metre running deer in the 1960s and made its way into the Olympic programme in 1972. Although replaced there by the airgun version, 10 metre running target, in 1992, it still is part of the ISSF World Shooting Championships and continental championships.

Famous quotes containing the words running and/or target:
“A young person is a person with nothing to learn
One who already knows that ice does not chill and fire does not burn . . .
It knows it can spend six hours in the sun on its first
day at the beach without ending up a skinless beet,
And it knows it can walk barefoot through the barn
without running a nail in its feet. . . .
Meanwhile psychologists grow rich
Writing that the young are ones should not
undermine the self-confidence of which.”
—Ogden Nash (19021971)
“But this we know, the obstacle that checked
And tripped the body, shot the spirit on
Further than target ever showed or shone.”
—Robert Frost (18741963)
