Sandstorm beach-based assault course is coming to Bournemouth!

On Sunday 26 March 2017 the first ever Sandstorm will transform Bournemouth Beach into the ultimate seaside assault course.

With 20 obstacles over a 5K circuit (twice round for 10K), this one-day-only event – which is organised by lifesaving charity the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) – will see participants battle the sandy terrain, facing thrilling obstacles, specially designed to push the limits of both physical and mental endurance.

Hundreds of participants will put their strength, stamina and teamwork to the test as they climb, crawl and attempt to conquer the demanding course with obstacles including climbing walls, sand dunes, water pits, a cargo net, crossbeams and a slalom, to name just a few.

Lauren Pincott, from event organiser the RNLI, says:

‘Sandstorm’s going to transform Bournemouth beach into a challenging seaside assault course. The obstacles are meant to be a physical challenge, but not so tough they can’t be done. Participants can tackle them all or choose their battles. Sandstorm is about teamwork, pushing boundaries and achieving your potential – while also supporting the RNLI’s lifesaving work.

‘The RNLI’s volunteer lifeboat crew members and lifeguards are known for saving lives around our coasts, in all conditions, so Sandstorm is a great way for people to take on a personal challenge while also recognising and supporting the work our lifesavers carry out each year.

‘People can enter as individuals or as a team. Either way, this is a must-do event for anyone who likes a physical challenge, but it is only happening for one day – Sunday 26 March 2017 – so book tickets now to avoid disappointment!’

Tickets are on sale at sandstormchallenge.com. Early bird tickets are available until 19 February, and start from £40. After 19 February, the standard ticket price starts from £45. Varied transaction fees apply. Any profits go towards the RNLI’s lifesaving work.
