'SANDMAN I: True Grit' - Busselton to Dunsborough Beach Run
4:30am, SUNDAY 10/1/2016
SANDMAN I RESULTS HERE OPENSandman I: True Grit reflects the regularity of astronomy, a race aligned with a new moon, a low, low tide, and a perfectly timed sunrise. Whether you share the moment in company, sifting through the remains of last night's high tide, or go it alone with silent stingrays and dancing crabs, admiring the improbable grace of pelicans, this 25 kilometre beach run promises a mostly firm and flat surface, with up to 7 shallow water crossings. You will be able to run freely in the coolness either side of dawn, but you will also get wet feet, and shoes are definitely optional. There are no roads or pavements - just start to finish sand, water and rocks, the way nature intended it.

Head west, keep the water on your right, run.

AT the water's edge, directly in front of the horse exercise car park. If driving from Busselton, turn right immediately after the bridge, 500m on the Dunsborough side of the Wyndham Resort.
