Big Beach ChallengeThe Big Beach Challenge is an iconic sand running event, held on one of the Newcastle region's most famous beaches.

Choose from the 15km, 6km or 3km run/walk courses. Each course follows a 3km loop featuring timing mats to record how many laps each participant has completed and their times.

For 15km participants, the event will take between 1.5 hours and 3 hours to complete depending on fitness levels. Some prepration for running in soft sand is recommended, as a 15km run through soft sand is more challenging than a 15km road run.
