Unless you've been a hermit for the past few decades, you'll know that Red Bull organises hundreds of adventure and sporting events worldwide.
And when not showcasing the talents of some of the world's biggest athletes (such as dropping Kriss Kyle out of a helicopter on his bike) or inviting the best of the best to compete in a grand spectacle (one example being the world's best MTB athletes cutting up the Utah desert in Red Bull Rampage) in front of thousands, many events even invite the public to compete, giving them wings to put their own skills to the test.
So, if you're looking to get away soon, why not mix it in with a Red Bull event while you're at it? It's a win-win. Read on to see some of the best events and series you can visit this year, along with a couple of extra travel tips.
Expect more events to be added here as they're confirmed before the year is up. We'll add more as we get them. And if you don’t make these events this year, there’s always 2025…

Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series: Auckland, New Zealand – January 28

The event:
Elite athletes. A season-long competition. Diving timed to such precision it almost defies belief. No, not the Premier League, but rather the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series, which has been making a splash across the world for over a decade. And the vibrant Wynyard Quarter's waterfront location in Auckland, where the modern cityscape meets with the stunning Waitematā Harbour, is a brand-new spot for the world's best divers from which to wow the world.
The area has previously played host to major sporting events including the Rugby World Cup, the Volvo Ocean Race and the 36th America’s Cup, but this is the first time that Red Bull Cliff Diving will visit New Zealand and, as host to the final stop of the eight-round series, will see the new champions crowned in thrilling style.
