This is the 2023 route
The route of Red Bull X-Alps 2023 is finally revealed and there are quite a few surprises and challenges. For the first time since 2007 the race starts in a different location to Salzburg. It will begin in the Austrian town of Kitzbühel - Kirchberg, famous for its downhill ski race, the Hahnenkamm.
There’s also a mandatory via ferrata in the Sexten Dolomites. The 3 Zinnen (Tre Cime) Turnpoint is situated atop the peak of Paternkofel (2,740m) which can only be reached by a spectacular via ferrata climb. At 1,223km, the route is a similar length to 2021 so the difficulty has not increased there. But it is still an epic challenge. The route follows an anticlockwise out-and-back loop finishing again in the Austrian resort of Zell am See.
Red Bull X-Alps was founded 20 years ago, but back then the route looked nothing like the one today. The 2003 route was only 800km long and featured two mandatory Turnpoints. Click below to see how the route of the world's toughest adventure race evolved and changed over time.
Red Bull X-Alps is the world’s toughest adventure race. It’s difficult to think of another race that demands such high level of both physical and mental fitness of body and mind.
