Red Bull Branched Out, in partnership with Arboriculture AustraliaTM, is ready for its third running. The venue for this year will be Kapunda, South Australia, where 150 of the world’s best tree climbers will go against each other in a timed race.
The Red Bull Branched Out Tree Climbing Event is a new, exciting and physically challenging four- round elimination competition. In partnership once more with Arboriculture Australia, and Kapunda (SA), the three-day ‘one of its kind’ speed tree climbing event will be held on October 17, 18 and 19, 2019.
Now in its third year, Red Bull Branched Out 2019 is one not to be missed. The unique skill-based format challenges tree climbers to hit several targets in the 30 meter high tree canopy, starting at the top and swinging from fixed ropes descending down to the ground.
Up for grab a $25,000 prize in cash and over $50,000 of equipment and kit to be won, which make this the largest prize pool on offer for any tree climbing event in the world.
In each round, all climbers that have qualified for the round must attempt a tree circuit according to the rules. After each round, a designated proportion of climbers will be eliminated; climbers with the fastest times will progress through to the next round.
The fastest male and female climber to complete the Grand Final Circuit will be announced as the Red Bull Branched Out Champions for 2019.
