Dubliners to line up for one of the toughest races in the world

One of the toughest races of its kind is to be held in Dublin this September.

The Sandstorm Race is a 5KM obstacle which organisers say will challenges runners both mentally and physically over its punishing course.

The event will take on Dollymount Stand on Saturday 6 September 2014 and consists of multiple course challenges like tyre mound, a netted pyramid, an eight-foot wall, and a Slip and Slide.

Organisers SPIN FM revealed the details of the race on the Ryan and Jenny Show this morning. CEO of SPIN1038 Jamie Crawford said:  “We wanted to create a unique and fun event to encourage community participation while also challenging people to get fit and have fun and so Sandstorm was born.”

Spaces are limited and registration costs  €10 to enter. Prizes will be available on the day.

Race check-in begins at 10am on Saturday, 6th September with race start at 12noon.

Those interested in competing in the race can register here.
