WELCOME TO RED BULL QUICKSAND

HOW HARD CAN 1KM BE?

 

Red Bull Quicksand could be the most challenging kilometer you ever run. Competitors will push through the sand in an energy sapping knockout format, with heats, semi-finals, and finals.
On top of the obvious challenges that come with running on sand (runners expend 1.6 times more energy on sand than running on a road surface) – the course is filled with all kinds of sandy climbs, giving competitors a full examination of endurance, acceleration, and bursts of speed.

For the first time in Egypt, Red Bull Quicksand will take place on
Saturday 25 th of September, at ZED East in New Cairo.
