Bundaberg welcomes Beach Bash

GET ready for some fun in the sun and some sand in your undies when Bundaberg welcomes the first ever Beach Bash to Elliott Heads next month.

Organiser Ray Armstrong said the event promised to be a fantastic day out for young and old.

"We usually do it up the coast at Coolum, Coolangatta and other places but we thought we would bring it to Bundaberg because it is a nice place with a pretty big surf and fitness culture," he said.

"It will be a great day and we encourage everyone to get involved."

The obstacle race will be held at Elliott Heads on October 25 and will feature an array of challenges on a 3km and 6km track.

"There will be nets you have to crawl under, bouncers to crawl over, walls and shipping containers to get through and a whole lot more," Mr Armstrong said.

"It is certainly a challenge.

"Plenty of people go hard at it but it isn't a timed event so you can also just have a bit of fun with it."

If you don't fancy facing an obstacle on your own, Mr Armstrong said teams were more than welcome to get together and participate the day.

"Lots of groups get involved, whether it be families, friends or workplaces," he said.

"We also have many people who like to dress up on the day in amazing costumes, which makes it even more

exciting.

"There is a whole lot of camaraderie involved with an event like this.

" It's about people helping each other, having fun, getting fit and enjoying a day out at the beach."

Mr Armstrong said the event was strictly alcohol free and family friendly with a special course designed for children.

He said that the bash would bring a whole new experience to the region.

"Bundaberg hasn't seen an event like this before," he said.

"We are expecting a really good day. Hopefully the weather will turn it on but even if it is raining, it will still be a lot of fun."
