The Skyrunner® World Series logo

The Skyrunner® World Series is an annual international championship of high altitude endurance races organised from 2008 by the International Skyrunning Federation (ISF).[1] Previously the races were organised by the Federation for Sport at Altitude (FSA) that was founded in 1995 and functioned until ISF took over.[1]

The 2016 Skyrunner® World Series has four disciplines:[2][3]

  • Sky, races under 50 km and / or under five hours for the winner, with eight races on three continents
  • Extreme, super-technical races with otherwise the same parameters as Sky, with three races, all in Europe
  • Ultra, races over 50 km between five and twelve hours for the winner, with five races on two continents
  • Vertical, races with 1,000m vertical climb, with seven races on two continents

Points are allocated according to the finishing position, with 100 for the winner, 88 for second, 78 for third, down to two points for the fortieth placed competitor. The same scale is used for the women's event, but only down to fifteenth position. In order to prolong the opportunity to win the championship, double points are awarded in the final race. The best four results across the season are totalled, and the runner with the highest cumulative score is declared champion for the year.[3]
