Achensee Xtreme – Hike & Fly
Running and flying have a long tradition at Lake Achensee – sports that fascinate guests, locals, professionals and hobby athletes. The new event Achensee Xtreme will be a combination of these two sports. The event will take place on 26th May 2018 in Pertisau featuring its most prominent mountain – the Zwoelferkopf.
Exciting mountain running combined with impressive flight experiences will be the event highlights for participants and spectators alike.
The paragliders will climb up the 1,491-metre high Zwoelferkopf mountain and fly down into the valley. Next, they have to run uphill again and finally paraglide back to the final landing place in the valley. All participants will receive a starter package with cool goodies, and for the winners a total prize money of EUR 1,000 is waiting.
Another motivation for the participants: The competition will include a category for the best average times where great high-quality material prizes can be won. The Achensee Xtreme 2018 event follows the Olympic precept that it’s the taking part that counts.
Achensee Xtreme offers spectators and fans a spectacular flying event over and around Lake Achensee. The entire run or flight route can be viewed from the start and finish (Karwendel cable car park) or directly from the Zwoelferkopf.
