Red Bull 400 registration at Copper Peak nearly sold out
The Red Bull 400 is coming back to Copper Peak on Saturday, May 11, and registration is nearly sold out.
Last year's inaugural event was Copper Peak's first major event since 1994. It saw about 470 participants and nearly 4,000 spectators. It's the steepest run in the worldwide Red Bull 400 series at an angle of about 39 degrees. Participants climb the grass hill, then take a ramp up the ski jump to climb 40 stories up to the top of the hill.
Although it's only 400 meters, it's no walk in the park. Some participants don't even finish.
There are five heat events of the day. Men's, women's, coed solo races, as well as an afternoon coed heat and a "choose your heat" event. The afternoon coed heat is the only one still available for registration.
The Red Bull 400 takes over Copper Peak on Saturday, May 11. The afternoon coed heat costs $60 to register. You can register online
Copper Peak is also encouraging racers to use custom Red Bull 400 Copper Peak Giphy stickers on social media posts. Check out more on that in the embedded Facebook post below.
