This unique vertical race will have you race up and down a 200m high, 600m long sand dune – sounds easy right? Well, it’s no ultra, but physically, it’s super demanding and will have your legs burning and lungs screaming in pain! Super simple format: Complete a total of THREE dune climbs, race up to the flag and back down, you can rest in between as long as you like, but the one that rests the least and runs the fastest will win!

Who will be crowned the Adventure HQ Sand Burn champions?

For this race you do not need to carry mandatory kit. Water, electrolyte and fruit will be available at the start/finish point. Sand gaiters would be a good call, but it’s up to you, you can empty your shoes on each loop if you prefer. No specialist equipment required. It’s just YOU vs THE DUNE!
