Taking place on May 18 2019, in Margate Kent, Red Bull Quicksand - returns less than a year after its thrilling inception - could be the most challenging mile you ever run. The event will see 750 participants push through the sand on the one-mile long course on the Great British seaside.


Runners expend 1.6 times more energy on sand than running on a road surface - the course includes a number of sandy climbs, giving competitors a full fitness examination.


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. This year, the course includes 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.
