The beaches from Gaol Point to the top of Rocky Beach will be transformed into an obstacle course as part of the revitalised Sand Mania 2017.

The Kosciuszko climb, dump onya mate, water weave and crab crawl will be some of the challenges on offer among the 27 obstacles at the November 12 event.

Sand Mania, designed to cater for all fitness levels, is all about a great day out with friends, family, colleagues or team mates.

One of the organisers, Steve Thomas, said the 2017 Sand Mania had been rejuvenated with a free T-shirt for entrants and new obstacles and events on the program.

The new obstacles and events on the program include: 

  • A timed corporate challenge with teams of four competing to take home the Corporate Cup.
  • The main Sand Mania challenge which is an untimed event.
  • Multi-Mania for those wishing to take on the course as many times as they like, and;
  • Not forgetting the 6-12 year olds, Mini-Mania is also on the program, from 10am with every entrant receiving a medal instead of a T-shirt.

Mr Thomas said: “For school leavers, what a great way to unwind from the stresses of the just completed HSC exams with some fun in the sun with your friends.

“Dress up in your best colourful outfits and be in the running to pick up one of many fancy dress prizes from our sponsors.”

The event, organised by Tacking Point Lions Club, is a fundraiser for Marine Rescue Port Macquarie and Headspace Port Macquarie.

Mr Thomas acknowledged the support from the community with major event partners making the event possible.
