The second event in the 2021 Bordairrace hike-and-fly series will take place in Sillian, East Tyrol from 4-6 June.
Organised locally by the Blue Sky paragliding school, Sillian is on the Pustertal XC highway. If the weather conditions are reasonably good, distances of well over 200km are possible, with magnificent views of the Dolomites and the main chain of the Alps.
Bordairraces are out-and-return hike-and-fly races: the idea is to go as far as you can, but you must get back to the start for maximum points. You have 33 hours to complete the task.
Registration opens online (www.bordairrace.com) four weeks before the event. Organisers warn these races tend to fill up fast (within 24 hours).
