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.

Hout Bay Trail Challenge 2022

Wow Hout Bay Trail Challenge turns 20 this year! It all started with a mere 25 intrepid runners on an adventure around Hout Bay in less than optimal conditions, self-navigating on an unmarked route. We are now limited to only 250 runners over the course, with more defined paths to follow and records that tumble as athletes continually challenge each other, raising the bar. It has been great to be part of the continued growth of trail running.
The Hout Bay Trail Challenge is one of the oldest trail runs and over the years has gained the reputation of being one of the toughest trail runs (km for km) in South Africa.
Fitness, technique and strength are all key to crossing the finish line of The Hout Bay Trail Challenge.
Two course options are available:
– Individual +-40km
– Team (3 team members each completing one leg of the 40km course)
Who’s going to be on the start line this year?
