Shuffle, crawl or climb your way around Canoe Point

IF YOU are looking to get outdoors this weekend and don't mind being sandy, then the Gladstone Road Runners' Runathon 2 event on Saturday is perfect for you.

President Brett Stevens said the non-competitive 4km run held at Tannum Sands is about getting people into outdoor activities.

The course takes its inspiration, at a scaled-down level and minus the mud, from other adventure races such as Tough Mudder, Stampede and Urbanthon.

Last year was the inaugural event.

Stevens said the club were surprised by the massive turn-out of 156 people.

Gladstone Road Runners invites participants of all ages and abilities to become involved.

Last year there was everyone from little kids to grandparents.

Challenge the kids, your partner or colleagues and get ready to shuffle, crawl, climb amongst the trails, sand and water surrounding Canoe Point.

The event commences at 4.30pm.

Registration is on the day.

It's all as simple as turning up and signing the indemnity form, paying $5 and receiving a competitor number.
