Der verrückteste Team Race im Appenzeller Alpstein!


The ALPSTEIN CROSSING family originated from the FreewingsCommunity and lives with its own club the HFC Alpstein the dream of an own event around the discipline Hike&Fly. At home in the mountains, the team and all contributors help to make the event in the Appenzell Alpstein a reality.

Our motivation has always been to give something back to the Alpstein region and mountain sports. We are proud to be at home in this region and place an extremely high value on the fact that as many regional companies, clubs, flight schools, organizations, transport system and tourism as possible can participate in our event. ALPSTEIN CROSSING thrives on community, teamwork and togetherness.

ALPSTEIN CROSSING should always be special and crazy, no matter what. This also applies to the type or rules of this race and especially in the Hike&Fly category. The race format chosen aims at a Hike&Fly race par excellence. Not only flying skills have to be proven, but also physical fitness in running. In 2024, a pure trail running category will be offered in addition to the Hike&Fly discipline. The format is also perfect for crazy runners. The turnpoints around Weissbad snake around the hills and peaks of the Alpstein like the arms of an octopus. Therefore also our call to the athletes #bezwingediekrake. In total there are about 30km of flying distance and about 4000 HM of running distance available. For runners, up to over 50 km of trail running are on the program! Wow!

Many thanks to all pilots, athletes, contributors, partners, sponsors and friends of air sports and trail running for making the dream of ALPSTEIN CROSSING come true.

Sporty greetings
