World BASE Race was held for the first time in August 2008 and immediately received worldwide media coverage due to the growing interest in Wingsuitpiloting. World BASE Race took center stage due to local support, and our corporate partner's resources in presenting an international first class event.

This is the ultimate challenge human beings can face in a high-speed adrenaline sport. Head to head flying a 750 meters (1 300 meters in Hellesylt) horizontal, 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.

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. 

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.
