Relive the World's Toughest Adventure Race | Red Bull X-Alps 2017

In July 2017, 31 world-class athletes from 20 different nations embarked on a grueling hike and fly adventure across the Alps. Filming the race was an 18-man camera crew, equipped with the latest technology and a helicopter. Just in time for the holidays, we've put together a 52-minute documentary showcasing the most epic moments of this year’s edition.

Jam-packed with incredible paragliding and almost impossible feats of Alpine adventure, the movie is now online at Narrated by race reporter Tarquin Cooper, the documentary features veteran pilots such as reigning champion Chrigel Maurer (SUI1), Paul Guschlbauer (AUT1) and Romanian running man Toma Coconea (ROU), as well as rookies like Benoît Outters (FRA4) and Simon Oberrauner (AUT4).

AR World Championship 2018 - Full Episode

In an expedition adventure race the competitors cram in so many intense experiences and emotions they lose track of time completely, the outside world is forgotten, and their immediate surroundings and team mates are all that matter. They are face to face with nature and in the moment … for a race which lasts a week.

So where better to hold an Adventure Race World Championships than on an island isolated in the middle of a vast ocean, a place which is in itself a world apart, and where the terrain and climate are both beautiful and extreme?

Ryan Clayton Films:
Interested in the gear used? Check it out here:
Contact me if you are a Race Director or Athlete that wants their race documented!

The MISSION is Indiana's longest-running annual adventure race, one of the region's most competitive and challenging. DINO has produced the popular MISSION Adventure Race, typically in southeastern Indiana, since 2003.

The MISSION Lite offers beginner adventure racers a chance to see what it's all about. A shorter, 4-hour cutoff; less complex navigation; and reduced gear list allow an introductory taste of AR.

Participants travel by foot, bicycle, and canoe in teams (or in the Solo division), using map and compass to find checkpoints. Each team must stay together the entire race. Along the way, they will encounter various natural and manmade challenges that test physical and mental ability and creativity.

For those up to the challenge, a solo division is offered.

The course is designed to keep most participants going all 18 hours, creating a dramatic finish line setting where family and friends can cheer for their team as they emerge from the darkness.
