The King of the Alps held on the Italian Tyrol is back!!! And we’re super proud at Kayak Session Magazineto be this year again the media sponsor for the event! The registration are opened (see link below), so if you fancy some tyrolian adventure with an italian feel, do not think twice, the Passer valley near the wonderful town of Merano is made for you!
For its 3rd edition the King of the Alps change format and main location! From the gorgeous town of Meran (north Italy), we are moving upstream into the valley in the village of Moos direct at the put in of the Passer Gorge (V-VI).
The format is still based on two races: a mass start marathon (same course of previous years) and, instead of the boaterX a head-to-head, i.e. the fastest of the marathon will battle against slower classified and so on. The second part of the race will be on the rapid above the Gorge (big volume class IV+)
There will be prizes for the individual races as well as a conspicuous money prizes for the best 5 men and 3 women of the overall and of course will crown the king and queen of the Alps!
After the price giving there will be a big party with a DJ-set provided by LoveElectro!
