Beach Flags – It Is Always a Crowd Favourite

beach flags

It’s the most exciting 20m sprint you will ever see! The Beach Flags is a crowd favourite at all lifesaving competitions worldwide and it’s not hard to see why.

In this event, from a prone starting position on the beach, competitors rise, turn and race to obtain a baton (beach flag) buried upright in the sand approximately 20 m away.

Since there are always fewer batons than competitors, those who fail to obtain a baton are eliminated.
