The beach events include distance running on the sand (1 and 2 km), beach sprints (90m), beach flags and beach relays (4x beach sprint teams). The sand adds a completely different challenge to normal athletics events, and can be great cross-training for aspiring athletes.
The beach flags although appearing at first sight as a ‘novelty event’, is one of the hardest fought competitions in all of the surf life saving competitions.
