Competition on the sand

Beach events are held on the sand and include events such as:

Beach sprint – competitors race on a straight sand course of approximately 70 – 90 metres to the finishing line.

Beach relay – teams of 4 competitors race on a straight sand course of approximately 70 – 90 metres 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 is always less 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 500 metres to total approximately 2 km.
