Sandman II: True Grit in Busselton, Western Australia

Sandman II: True Grit is a beach run starting at 4.30am from Busselton to Dunsborough, Western Australia. Run the full 25km, or shorter 6km or 12km distances along the beach.

Sandman II: 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.
