Competition in the age-group beach sprints is fierce and kids of all ages and abilities are encouraged to enter.

For the fashionistas, there's our annual Fashion in the Field event (or should we say sand?) - a not-too-serious nod at the raceday tradition. Registrations can be made on the day.
Don't miss the Silent Auction- a fantastic chance to bid for some incredible products and services kindly donated by local businesses. Browse the items on offer and place bids at the Auction tent between 10am and 3pm.
