What is the Relaxathon?
The Relaxathon is the Caribbean’s first-ever competition just for relaxing. It will take place on June 13, 2024, on Eagle Beach, because this competition needs an equally relaxing venue.
How do I reserve a spot?
Simply fill out this form to enter for a chance at a spot to compete in the Relaxathon. Spots are reserved on a first-come, first-serve basis. Your spot will be locked in once you hear from a member of Real Time Media (RTM) and complete an RSVP form.
Keep an eye on your email as we will continue to communicate important event info to participants leading up to the event.
Can I participate if I don’t get a spot?
If spots are filled, you are welcome to come to the Relaxathon to spectate – a designated area will be available for viewers. In the event, we have spots open prior to the start of the event, we may randomly select spectators to compete!
How does it work?
One hundred competitors will lay out on the beach for one hour while wearing heart rate monitors. Participants will be instructed to get as relaxed and comfy as possible while keeping their heart rate low and steady.
Points will be awarded based on how well relaxers maintain their heart rate. Whoever stays the most relaxed for one hour wins!
Who can participate?
The Relaxathon is open to anyone 18 years or older and able to lay on the beach for one hour. Participants must be in Aruba through June 14th to participate - the Relaxathon is on June 13th.
What can I win?
The top 3 Relaxers at the end of the competition will be awarded medals and epic travel prize packages, with the grand prize being a return trip to Aruba!
What are the rules
1. Relaxers must remain as calm as possible for the duration of the competition.
2. Relaxers will be scored based on their heart rates captured by provided monitors.
3. Distractions like phones, music players, or books are not allowed. You gotta relax the old-fashioned way.
4. Relaxers must remain sitting up with their eyes open. It’s a Relaxathon. Not a Napathon.
5. Relaxers must stay on their assigned towel, and interfering with others during competition is prohibited.
6. Talking during the Relaxathon is discouraged. No one likes a noisy beach.
7. Friends and family are invited to watch the event.
8. Most importantly… have fun!
9. Please review the entire Rules here:
Do I need to bring anything?
Bring a form of identification (like your passport) and your most relaxed self. Towels, sunscreen, and water will be provided to all Relaxathon participants.
What should I wear?
We recommend all Relaxers wear lightweight athletic clothing to which a Relaxathon bib can be pinned and easy-to-remove shoes.
What if I’m not good at relaxing?
The Relaxathon is the perfect opportunity to work on it! You might just surprise yourself.
