Red Bull Quicksand

After its thrilling inception in 2018, Red Bull Quicksand will return to Margate, Kent on Saturday, 18th May 

Runners will test their mettle against hundreds of other competitors in this innovative and gruelling seaside race.

Red Bull Quicksand, the brutal, one-mile beach race sees runners battling through sand – and a treacherous series of obstacles – to make it to the finish. Last year, the course presented runners with trenches, rollers and whopping sandcastles, with the tallest climb a staggering 23 feet tall – almost the height of two double-decker buses. This 2019 edition promises even bigger, tougher obstacles, including a new loose sand tabletop obstacle, set to challenge runners even further.

Competitors will push through the sand in an energy-sapping knockout format, with heats, semi-finals and finals. 

Competitors will be split into heats with men and women in separate heats.

Early bird tickets £20 (available until February 19), and available to purchase from Tuesday 5th February at 10am.

Sound like your idea of fun? See you on the beach!
