Beach bash cancelled
THE first ever Beach Bash which was set to come to Elliott Heads on October 25 has been cancelled due to lack of interest from the public.
Dubbed the "craziest and sandiest obstacle challenge in Australia", the 3km course included up to 26 obstacles designed to challenge groups and individuals in a unique setting.
Bundaberg Regional Council's spokesman for environment and natural resources councillor Danny Rowleson, who organised getting the event to Bundaberg, said he was devastated that by the news.
"To date, there have only been about 350 people who have signed up to participate when the organisers need a minimum of 1000," he said.
"I'm absolutely gutted. I have spent close to 12 months trying to persuade the promoters to bring the event here," he said.
"It is disappointing to say the least. We have tried to put on something for families to be involved in and something that promotes health and fitness and the community are not interested."
Owner of Beach Bash Ray Armstrong said he was equally as disappointed in the cancellation.
"The Beach Bash team were very excited to bring our unique obstacle challenge, promoting fitness and fun for all ages, to the Bundaberg region on Sunday 25 October at Elliott Heads," he said.
"To our regret and disappointment Beach Bash has had to make the hard decision to cancel the event due to a lack of registrations. We thank those who supported the event."
