The Red Bull Quicksand is coming to Kenya on 12th December, 2021 in partnership with Bucketlist Adventures.

Set on the beautiful sandy beaches of Diani, competitors will run through the special sand course in a tough knockout format, with heats, semi-finals, and finals. Interested participants can register HERE.

The half mile course is challenging as participants run on sand, and go through giant sand castles and under trenches and rollers. The course will give competitors a test of endurance, acceleration and speed.

Categories include Individual runner, Sports club, Running club, Gym groups, Corporate team of 5 runners and Corporate team of 10 runners. The event will be open and free for spectators to cheer on participants. Organizers of the event have insisted that COVID-19 protocols will be observed.

Participants may arrange their own travel and accommodation to suit their preferences. However, specially negotiated event travel and accommodation packages are available through Turn-Up Travel for both local and international visitors.
