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:
‘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.
