Red Bull X-Alps

The Red Bull X-Alps is the world’s toughest adventure race, a bold claim, but one it probably deserves. The concept is a simple one. Athletes must race from Salzburg to Monaco, by foot or paraglider, a straight-line distance of approximately 1,000km. Its simplicity is something that has attracted and tested to the limit some of the world’s top adventurers over the last 10 years. Among adventurers, it’s known as the ultimate race. It’s an incredible challenge, demanding not only expert paragliding skill but extreme endurance. Some athletes will hike over 100km in a day and will have covered over 900km on foot by the time the race is over! Each team consists of one athlete and up to two supporters. No technical or outside assistance is allowed. The support team is just there to help with logistics, food and mental help. Athletes can race between the hours of 05:00 to 22:30. But in a new twist for 2013 that promises to make the race even more exciting, athletes can each pull one ‘Night Pass’ that will allow them to push-on through the night on foot. Fans can follow the action live, and the sixth Red Bull X-Alps promises to be an unforgettable race. GG will definitely be following the action, as you should you; here.
