The Sand Marble Race: Tournament 2016 was the inaugural season of the Sand Marble Rally, with only a few one-off sand marble rally events occurring before the start of the 2016 season.

The first race of the first season was aired on June 18th, 2016 and was watched by about 4k people.

The Race was located in "Doornse Gat", National Park Utrechtse Heuvelrug, the Netherlands. It has many obstacles such as Weaves/Braids, Ribbons/Slaloms, Jumps, Bridges, Crosses, and many more. 


The Qualifiers Race never aired but the creator has gave info and extra footage of it but not the full event. In the first race 33 out of 100 marbles made it into the Rally. It took 7 hours to construct and it's surface is composed of sand and corals.

Another qualification race followed, this one would determine the starting positions for the race 1. This race did get uploaded.


The season consisted of 12 races, where points were awarded based on the finishing position of each marble. The points awarded for finishing in each position are detailed in the table below (no points are awarded for finishing outside the top 20 or for a DNF);

In addition to awarding points, the finishing positions of the marbles determines their starting position for the next race, with the 7 top finishers lining up in the front row. The rest of the marbles are in random compacted order.[1] After six races, the cumulative total scores were used to determine the best 20 marbles over the first half of the season, and only these 20 marbles competed in the later half of the season. After 12 races, the marble with the highest overall points tally is crowned the Sand Marble Rally Champion for 2016.

  • The Flash's score as of Race 12 showed up as 108, but that was his score as of Race 11. The Flash got 6th place and 15 points in Race 12, so his real score was 123. As a result, The Flash was actually 2 spots higher than what some of you probably thought, and he got 10th place instead of 12th.
