Shelly Beach Surf Life Saving Club are staging the world’s first Athletics carnival on the beach at Shelly Beach Central Coast NSW.
The carnival will have events for ages ranging from u14 through to 60+ with Athletics events from 70m through to 2KM, a 4x90 relay and a traditional beach flags event. Shelly Beach SLSC will set an 8 lane track for events 180m and under, with the 500m, 1km and 2km race on the water’s edge.
To compensate for the sand, we are reducing each straight track event by 10m per 100m, so in fact, we are setting up a 180m (200 – (2*10m)) straight track on the beach. For the distance runners, poles will be set 500m apart and finishing off with a separate area for beach flags.
Please note this event is not run by Surf Life Saving NSW.
