Skyrunner World Series logoNew year, new calendar, new format. The 2012 Skyrunner® World Series calendar offers a distance for every runner with stand-alone circuits where both Vertical and Ultra champions will have a taste of the glory (and prize money).  

Five all-time greats make up the main section with a choice of two out of three compulsory races in the other three sections for the Skyrunner® World Series champion title.  

The new Ultra Series reflects the popular demand for long distance races, stopping short of the 80 km mark but not forgetting the gruelling vertical climb and altitude that distinguish skyrunning.
 
The mammoth 83 km Transvulcania on the island of La Palma kicks off the Ultra Series on May 12, where the world’s top ultra runners will compete in this quintessential skyrunning race – from sea to summit with 8,525m of punishing ascent and descent along the rugged backbone of the island. 

A cooler climate kicks off the Vertical and SkyRace® calendar, both on Russia’s Mount Elbrus on May 7 and 9 with plenty of snow and altitude to whet the appetite of the most seasoned skyrunners. Click here to subscribe to the newsletter for the latest on all the races.

Twenty spectacular races, many of them new entries, will open their doors to skyrunners across the world in what promises to be the best calendar to date with more races, more awards, more prize money and, of course, more kilometres and more altitude - for the record, 680 kilometres and 48,000m vertical climb!  


*Entry is direct with organizers. At the end of this month full info in English will be available.
