Red Bull Quicksand

Red Bull Quicksand could be the toughest 1 mile you’ve ever run. Set on the beautiful sandy beaches of Durban, competitors run through the special course filled with giant sandcastles in an energy-sapping knockout format, with heats, semi-finals, and finals.

On top of the obvious challenge that comes with running on sand (runners expend up to 1.6x more energy on sand than running on a road surface), the course is rigged with giant sand castles, trenches and rollers, giving competitors a real test of endurance, acceleration, and bursts of speed.

Dream Adventure Weekend

With inter-provincial travel now open, we are extremely excited about our Dream Adventure Weekend event for 2020, taking place at the Tala Collection Game Reserve. We are offering a chance to get out of the city and spend the weekend trail running, MTB riding, braaing in the bush and much more.

Wander through exquisite nature, run alongside an abundance of wild game and boost those endorphins while you’re at it! As if that is not enough, know that you are doing your part to keep the farm in business.

As Thursday is Heritage day, participants are welcomed to take advantage of the long weekend, and book accommodation at the Tala Collection Game Reserve. Discounted accommodation packages are available to all race entrants and their families. To find out more about accommodation packages, please mail us on or call us on 0317818000

If you are joining for the day and taking part in the run/ ride separately, we welcome you to make a day of it. We will have braai and picnic facilities, food stalls, coffee and craft beer available at the finish line. To book a pre-packed picnic basket (including a blanket, umbrella, food and drinks), please purchase on the entry portal. Bring your friends and families along and take advantage of a day out under the African skies. Spectator rates are reduced to R60 per adult, and R40 applies to pensioners, and kids under 12.
