A three day hike and fly race through New Zealand's stunning Southern Alps. Athletes compete by racing through the streets and mountains of Wanaka on foot or by flying their paragliders. An official list of checkpoints is provided to atheletes who decide which they will cross and the order in which they will cross them. The further from the finish line they travel, the higher the points but the larger the stakes. 

The event director is Kinga Masztalerz who competed for New Zealand in the 2019 Red Bull X-Alps, a 1,200 kilometre race across the European Alpes known for being the World's toughest adventure race.
