Beach Events

Running is an exciting area of competition to get involved in and is also one of the basic surf life saving skills.

Many great champions such as Jarred Moon, Jeff Davidson, Aaron Brinkworth and Mitch Cavanagh, to name a few, have had great success at both State and National levels. Their coaching and competition abilities have played a key role in developing the squad over a number of years.

So come on down and have a go, see the club calendar for details of training venues and times.

Beach Sprints and Relays

An individual event for sprints or team of four for relays.

  • 70 metres for Nippers U8 – U13, Youth U14 and Masters
  • 90 metres for U15 – Open

1km/2km Beach Run

A sand course usually broken up in laps of 500m. Course lengths:

  • 1km – Nippers u11, u12,13, Masters 60+
  • 2km – Youth u14, u15, u17, u19, Opens, Masters 30–59 years.

Beach Flags

In this event, athletes lie face down in the sand and – on the whistle – jump to their feet, turn around and sprint before diving for a rubber baton (the ‘flag’) located in the sand. Speed, reaction and power to weight ratio is a very important part of being successful in this event. This is a knock-out event, so there is always one (or more) baton less than competitors per heat.

Track lengths for the beach flags:

  • 15 metres for Nippers u8 – u13, Youth u14 and Masters
  • 20 metres for U15 – Open

March Past

March Past is one of Surf Life Saving’s original events and represents the traditional discipline of a surf lifesaver. Teams of 12, march in time to music around a set course carrying a surf reel, line and belt and following their standard (flag) bearer. Teams march in formation following commands and they are judged on factors such as timing, arm and leg swing, space and dressing, body carriage and presentation.
