The Sandy 2013, A 14km Beach run from Umhlanga to Durban, was a smash hit with all who participated.

Durban delivered a picture perfect August morning with no wind and a moderate cloudless day. More important was the fact that the Spring Low Tide presented a very hard sand base from start to finish which resulted in runners knocking between 5 and 20 minutes off their 2011 finishing times.

A new course record was set by race winner Victor Ngubela at 50min5Sec slashing 5 minutes off the record. Ladies run winner Keren Worlock knocked 17minutes off her 2011 time, finishing in a credible 1:03:51 for the 14km Sandy Run.

The race is however more about exposing the natural beauty of the beaches between Umhlanga and Durban and loads of people were heard exclaiming that they could not believe just how stunning this section of coastline is.

The 2014 Edition of The Sandy Beach Walk/Run Race will be 10 August 2014

Entries will be limited so make sure you enter early to avoid disappointment!
