For most people, the route from Salzburg to Monaco is by road, but you can climb mountains and paraglide across the Alps instead. The Red Bull X-Alps annual race is just the thing that’s offering it to you.

It is one of the toughest challenges in the world, demanding not only expert paragliding skills but extreme endurance. Participating athletes need to hike or fly over a distance of about 1,000 kilometers between Salzburg and Monaco, through one of the world’s most unforgiving environments.

The contestants race between 5:00 am and 10:30 pm, hiking over 100 kilometers a day. A typical race lasts about 10 days, and each athlete covers over 900 kilometers on foot. They burn about 5,000 to 7,000 calories a day, which means they pretty much need to eat all day.
