RED BULL X-ALPS IS BACK IN 2019
APPLICATION PHASE OPEN FOR THE WORLD’S TOUGHEST ADVENTURE RACE
When it comes to hike and fly events, nothing compares to Red Bull X-Alps. Every two years, around 30 world-class athletes race across the Alps by foot and paraglider. It's difficult to think of another race that demands such a high level of both physical and mental fitness of body and mind. For this reason, it’s known as the world’s toughest adventure race; and it’s returning on June 16, 2019.
Although the ninth edition kicks off in just over a year - the tension is already beginning to mount. The application phase for Red Bull X-Alps 2019 is officially open until August 31, 2018.
The official selection of athletes will be announced on October 16, 2018. To find out which route to battle through, we will all have to wait until March 13, 2019.
There’s no telling what will happen in 2019, but every step of your favorite athletes will be closely monitored by an advanced interactive Live Tracking technology and broadcast to an audience of millions.
Following the announcement of race dates for Red Bull X-Alps 2019, partners are already hopping on board. With exposure to millions of adventure sports enthusiasts and fans globally and more than 600 million contacts in two weeks of racing, it’s a dream event – an extended exposure to a highly engaged audience.
