Australia’s Newest Mass-Participation Obstacle Event

Beach Warrior

Beach Warrior is a mass-participation obstacle event held on beaches across Australia.

With a range of challenging-yet-fun obstacles set over grass, sand and surf, Beach Warrior is perfect for some family fun in the sun.

The Beach Warrior “pinnacle event” is held annually as part of the iconic Coolangatta Gold weekend and attracts weekend warriors and seasoned obstacle racers alike.

All funds raised from Beach Warrior events are used to support Surf Life Saving Clubs.




Over a 4 km obstacle course, Beach Warrior will take participants through grass, sand and along the water’s edge. Competitors will get wet as they complete the 25 tough-but-fun obstacles, but there’s no swimming and no craft to paddle so anyone can participate.

Beach Warrior obstacles include the curiously-named Mega Cargo Climb, Hurdle Highway, Pyramid Alley, and the Inflatable Monster. A more complete list of obstacles can be found at www.beachwarrior.com.au

The very first Beach Warrior will be held on Saturday 12 October at Coolangatta Beach, between 1pm and 5pm, as a part of the Coolangatta Gold Festival.
