Christies Beach is currently developing a suitable Beach program for our beach competitors, with some training sessions available during the week.
For more information, please contact the Beach Captain. Details available on the Contact Us page.
Beach events are held on the sand and included events such as Beach Sprint where competitors race on a straight sand course of approximately 70 – 90metres to the finishing line.
Beach sprint – competitors race on a straight sand course of approximately 70 – 90metres to the finishing line.
Beach relay – teams of 4 competitors race on a straight sand course of approximately 70 – 90metres with a baton, running one lap each. The final runner of a team over the finish line wins.
Beach flags – competitors start lying on their stomach facing away from a baton/s buried in the sand approximately 15 – 20 metres away. There are always fewer batons than competitors. On the starting gun, competitors rise, turn and race to secure a baton. The competitor(s) who fail to obtain a baton are eliminated. The process repeats until there is a single winner.
2km Beach run – competitors race on a sand course in four laps of 500metres to total approximately 2km.
