On July 1, 2020, applications for the world’s toughest adventure race came pouring in. Tons of seasoned pros and upcoming rookies from around the globe made their case to compete in the tenth edition of Red Bull X-Alps. 

As of August 31, 2020, the application phase came to a close, leaving the race committee to begin the careful process of selecting the athletes from hundreds of applications from 29 countries from all over the world, but the real challenge is the race itself. Totaling more than 1,000km in distance, there is no greater test of body and mind than racing by foot and paraglider through Europe’s treacherous alpine terrain. Only the most skilled and experienced will earn their spot at Red Bull X-Alps 2021; their performance however lies solely in the hands of fate.

The chosen athletes will be announced to the world on October 14, 2020, so keep a close eye on our website and social media to find out if you’re among them! 

Event organizer Ulrich Grill explains; “Some of the most exciting elements of the race are often the unique personalities who compete in it. For 2021, we can certainly expect a thrilling mix of fresh faces and returning veterans.”

On behalf of the entire Red Bull X-Alps team, a huge thanks goes out to everyone who took the time to submit their applications.
