The Sand-Seal Race is a mini-game in Breath of the Wild.[1]

Location and Rules

The Sand-Seal Race can be found in the Sand-Seal Rally just south of the Gerudo Town. It becomes available once Link frees the Divine Beast Vah Naboris.[2]

During the race, Link must Sand-Seal Surf through a course following a series of marked arches. If Link gets off his Shield or leaves the course bounds, he will be disqualified.[3] The first time Link attempts to race, the Shrine Quest, "The Undefeated Champ", will begin. For 50 Rupees,[4] Link must beat the current record of 1:30, held by the Sand-Seal Racing champion, Tali.[5] If Link succeeds, he will be rewarded with an Ancient Orb used to reveal the Raqa Zunzo Shrine.[6][7] After completing the Shrine Quest, Link can try to beat his own record for 100 Rupees.[8] If Link succeeds, he will earn a Gold Rupee.[9]
