Updated : 2019-05-19 09:08:47

Red Bull Quicksand returned to Margate, UK on May 18 to challenge runners with its treacherous series of obstacles. The brutal one-mile beach race saw competitors battling through sand to make it to the finish.Last year, the course presented runners with trenches, rollers and whopping sandcastles, with the tallest climb a staggering 23 feet tall – almost the height of two double-decker buses. Open to a bigger field of 750 participants, the 2019 edition brought even bigger, tougher obstacles, including a new loose sand tabletop obstacle.Participants compare the experience to "a bad dream you can't run away from", "a really evil high-intensity workout" and to "running in high heels".
