Red Bull Quicksand


Red Bull Quicksand could be the most challenging mile you ever run. Competitors will push through the sand in an energy sapping knockout format, with rounds, semi-finals, and finals.

On top of the obvious challenges that come with running on sand (runners expend 1.6 times more energy on sand than running on a road surface) – the course is filled with all kinds of sandy climbs, giving competitors a full examination of endurance, acceleration, and bursts of speed.

For the first time in South Africa, Red Bull Quicksand will take place on Saturday 16th of July, on New Beach, Durban from 08h00.

Limited to 600 participants.
