Red Bull X-Alps is back! Applications to compete in the 2017 edition of the race across the Alps are open from July 01 to August 31, 2016.
Red Bull X-Alps 2017 will be the eighth edition of the epic paratrekking race and starts on July 02. Athletes must journey non-stop for more than 1,000km across the Alps by foot or paraglider via set turnpoints. This demands a high level of endurance because when the weather isn’t friendly for flying, athletes must keep trekking until the clouds clear and they can take off again. It’s not uncommon for athletes to hike up to 100km in a day.
Applications can be made via the official website, www.redbullxalps.com, from July 01 to August 31, 2016. The race committee looks forward to receiving your entry
