The big news for 2015 is that the Skyrunner® Series goes global – more races, more places and, now, the chance to count an extra race in the ranking.  The successful 5 SKY / 5 ULTRA / 5 VK formula stays where three results out of five are scored, but now you can choose a fourth race from the Continental Championships of your choice to complete the ranking.

Twenty-seven races in nine countries stretch across five continentsAfrica, Australia and China make their first appearance on a global scale, together with the rugged mountains north of the Arctic Circle in Norway.

New Skyrunner® National Series will be announced throughout the year, so skyrunning closer to home becomes a tangible reality in: Africa, North South America, Andorra, Canada, Czech Republic, France, Greece, Italy, Oceania, Poland, Portugal, Russia and Spain.
