You choose your challenge – hard-packed sand near the water or softer sand near the road. Enjoy the sun and the sound of waves as you persevere through the wind. After your race, hang out on the beach, have an ice-cold drink and food from The Beach Lodge, or enjoy some shopping and sight-seeing in town. Make a vacation out of your race and enjoy the time with friends, family, and the Ultra Expeditions Team!
