Red Bull X-Alps

in Wagrain-Kleinarl in 2021 and 2023

On  20th of June, 2021 the 10th edition of Red Bull X-Alps starts.

Racestart &  turnpoint 20th june, 2021

The participants of the Red Bull X-Alps fight their way across the Alps in about 1,200 kilometers.

The 2nd Turnpoint - here the participants change the direction - is in Wagrain-Kleinarl. The distance between the turnpoints is not fixed and the athletes can choose their route freely. 

The arrival of the athletes in Wagrain-Kleinarl on Sunday, June 20th, is weather dependent and therefore can not be predicted accurately. In cause of good weather conditions, the first athletes reach the turnpoint in Wagrain-Kleinarl in the early afternoon, but in unfavorable flight conditions they will arrive later.
