Kontiolahti is a traditional biathlon venue and it has hosted Biathlon World Cup events several times in the past. The World Cup landed the first time in Kontiolahti during the season 1989/1990. All together Kontiolahti has organised a biathlon world cup event 14 times.

Kontiolahti has also been the host of the IBU Biathlon World Championships in 1999 and 2015. In 1990 the men's World Championships relay was competed in Kontiolahti.

In the spring of 2019/2020 Kontiolahti hosted the final competitions of the World Cup season when the final weekend in Holmenkollen, Oslo, Norway was cancelled due to the covid-19 outburst. The local hero Kaisa Mäkäräinen ended her career in the Kontiolahti events in front of empty seats as no spectators were allowed to enter the event.
