Red Bull X-Alps 2023 starts in Kitzbühel
The Red Bull X-Alps is the world’s toughest adventure race. It’s a fiercely contested battle across the Alps lasting almost two weeks in which around 30 athletes run, hike and fly by paraglider up to 150km a day passing set Turnpoints positioned across iconic mountains and famous resorts. With athletes often hiking up to 4,000m of vertical ascent a day and running as much as 100km on foot, it’s not only an incredible test of physical endurance but it has become recognized as the supreme test for the world’s best hike-and-fly athletes.
For the first time since 2007 the race starts in a different location. It begins in the Austrian town of Kitzbühel - Kirchberg, famous for its downhill ski race, the Hahnenkamm. The 34 athletes start from the town center before running 900m to the top. Here, they’ll attempt to spread their wings and launch themselves into the air and across the Alps. If the weather is bad, they continue on foot.
