The WANDERBIRD Trophy is an extreme sports event. The Trophy combines speedhiking & paragliding, which is done several times in a row during the event. Starting from the event area in the valley, the participants start towards the first paragliding take-off point. Several turnpoints have to be completed in a given order.


The route leads the participants partly into exposed positions. It is therefore recommended to inform yourself in advance about the condition, the course and the dangers that can lurk on the route. Caution is generally advised! Questions about the route are to be asked at the "briefing" to avoid ambiguities.

All athletes must complete the turnpoints in the given order. When reaching a turnpoint, a photo must be taken in front of the turnpoint sign as proof. The choice of the route between the turnpoints is left to the athletes themselves (unless otherwise defined at the briefing).

Since the choice of route is left to the athletes themselves, the route will only be partially signposted.
