Copper Peak Red Bull 400


For the past two years, the Red Bull 400 has invigorated Copper Peak, the iconic Ski Flying hill and Recreation Center in Ironwood, Michigan.

In light of the current guidance from national, state, and local government authorities on local event cancellations, Red Bull is postponing Red Bull 400 Copper Peak, originally scheduled for May 16, to September 26, 2020. For those who have already registered for the event, your registration will automatically give rights to participate in the event in September. If you cannot make the rescheduled date or no longer want to participate in Red Bull 400 Copper Peak, please email The principle is simple: participants start at the bottom of the ski jump and race 400 meters uphill 40 stories to the top of the largest artificial ski jump tower in the world. The nearly vertical race challenges participants’ speed and endurance, and is guaranteed to put the participants’ calves, quads and fitness, to the ultimate test.
