Envision two athletes standing on wooden platforms at the edge of a mountain cliff. Each man is dressed in state-of-the-art wingsuit. At the signal, they jump and race head-on to the finish line, deploying their parachutes and gliding to a safe landing.

Mind blowing? Extraordinary? Innovative genius? A testament to man’s dream of flight? A sporting event unlike any other in the world?

We answer yes to all of the above, and promise another great show in 2018.

The World Base Race is a racing sprint event in which the winners of each heat progress to the next round in the tournament. The race is designed as an easy to understand concept of two mountain flyers navigating a mapped and measured distance towards a finish line. Upon finishing they deploy their parachutes and land safely.

The number of heats is determined by the number of participants, eliminating pilots round by round until the world’s fastest flyer is crowned the winner.

This is the ultimate challenge human beings can face in a high speed adrenaline sport. Head to head flying a 750 (Innfjorden), 1 300 (Hellesylt) meters horizontal race course, where a perfect human flight will crown “The world’s fastest flying human being”.

Using nothing other than gravity, a body dressed in a wingsuit, and the perfect aerodynamic shape these athletes chase their dreams of flight in a stunning outdoor setting.

Innfjorden WBR title: “The world fastest flying human being”

We have created a spectator friendly arena to host the world’s most amazing public sporting event. Located among the beautiful fjords of Norway, this is a location like no other on earth.

We want to make this the greatest public party for athletes and spectators alike. This event demonstrates to the world the type of athletes Wingsuit pilots truly are in an exciting competition.

This is a top skilled athletic sport, where you not only have to compete head to head, but perform in front of the public.

All rounds in “The World BASE Race” have to be hiked by the athletes; therefore the winner must also be in great physical shape.

The athletes co-exist on the mountain along with the spectators making the event one of a kind in which spectators have a sense of being part of a new and exciting sport.

It all started in 2008, the rest is history
