Do you want to summit the highest peak in Europe and experience an unforgettable week in one of the most beautiful regions in Russia? Meet amazing athletes? Experience unforgettable moments? Expand your limits?

Then join us next year at the legendary, 10th Annual Red Fox Elbrus Race the first eight days of May, 2018!

This is an international Festival of extreme sports, the annual Red Fox Elbrus Race. The celebratory 10th Anniversary week will be held May 1st to 8th in 2018 on the slopes of Europe´s highest summit, Mt. Elbrus.

As one of the coveted 7 Summits, Mt. Elbrus (5642 m / 18,510 ft) is located in the Caucasus, one of the most rugged mountain ranges in the world and definitely one of the most beautiful places in all of Russia.

More than 400 well-known athletes: skyrunners, skiers, mountaineers, ski-mountaineers, and multi-sportsmen from around the world are setting their sights on new records!

For the first time in the 10 year history of the Festival there will be an expedition style ski mountaineering race around the historical places of Mt. Elbrus – the Elbrus Ski Monsters Expedition Race!

Last year Ecuador’s Karl Egloff set a world record for the Mt. Elbrus SkyMarathon®. Will that be broken? By Egloff himself, or you? What about the other disciplines? We know from experience the tradition of breaking old records and setting new ones at the Festival will continue! History is waiting to add your name.
