From 11 to 23 June the toughest Hike&Fly competition in the world will take place – the Red Bull X-Alps 2023. The race of superlatives, where the participants push their limits to the top. A pure adventure race, where athletes fly and race across the Alps by foot or paraglider to be the first to reach the finish line.

We are once again an official race partner with an incredibly strong team of international athletes and an established part of the paragliding event of the year.

During the Pre-Week we will be in Kirchberg/Kitzbühel – both in the Partner Village and the Prologue (08.06.), for the exclusive skywalk Testival (08.-11.06.) as well as for the Race-Start on 11.06.

  • Length: 1.223 Kilometer
