HE’S used to being chased but former Bachelor star Tim Robards will have to do it on sand this time.
The fitness fanatic is taking part in the annual Bondi Barefoot race to raise money for the North Bondi Surf Club.
The Bondi local will hit the sand in one of the event’s new races, the Celebrity Barefoot Bolt.
While he hasn’t sand sprinted in quite a while, Mr Robards said he will start conditioning his body for the event to give it his best go.
“A lot of people don’t understand soft sand running; they think it’s worse on the body. But there are actually a lot of benefits to it,” he said.
