Beach run to help families facing blood cancer
Publish Date: 17/11/2016
Sandshoes or no shoes, do you fancy yourself as a runner? A beach lover? Maybe both?
We’ve the perfect opportunity for you to combine both interests and enjoy a beach run which will Get Your Blood Pumping for Blood Cancer and raise funds to support the work of the Leukaemia Foundation in January.
Entries are now open for the Sandman II – True Grit beach run from the iconic Busselton Jetty to Old Dunsborough on Saturday, January 14. Registrants will be supporting Australian families facing life with blood cancer, with $20 from every entry helping the Leukaemia Foundation provide more support and fund vital research.
Runners will have the option of three distances depending on their levels of fitness and how much they want to challenge themselves – 6km, 12km, or 25km.
Starting at the iconic Busselton Jetty and following the epic shore of Geographe Bay, the run will curve gently north all the way to Old Dunsborough, where recovery and coffee will be eagerly awaited.
Organisers say the fundraiser has been spectacularly timed to coincide with a new moon, a low, low tide and a stunning sunrise, making for an even more memorable experience.
Shoes will definitely be optional, with up to seven shallow water crossings and no roads or pavements – just start-to-finish sand, water and rocks - the way nature intended it and simply stunning!
Registrations close Thursday, January 12 2017. To book your spot and find out more, please go to www.mrtrailrunners.org.au/sandman
