Races summary
Here's what races are available for Red Bull Quicksand
Route information
The course comprises of multiple sections created to test endurance, agility and speed. Trenches, rollers and six sandcastles stand between the runners and victory, with the tallest climb a staggering 23 feet tall – almost the height of two double-decker buses. Another highlight is a long version of the tabletop obstacle with loose sand set to slow runners down further.
With starving lungs and burning calves, advancing competitors will face the course all over again. The event follows a knockout format with runners progressing through heats and semi-finals to reach the grand final, in what is set to be yet another energy-sapping day on the Margate dunes.
