SkyRunner Challenge

The SkyRunner Challenge 2020 is a fun online challenge for amateur SkyRunners all over the world that like to have some extra boost in their daily running.

The challenge takes place from 1 of March 2020 to 31 of October 2020 online, and covers all three Skyrunning disciplines: SKY, ULTRA, and VERTICAL + an add on ULTRA PLUS. You can choose any race in the world and our purpose with the challenge is to combine the local onsite experience with the global online experience and to increase the engagement in the SkyRunner Adventurers community.

Except for continuous inspiration and motivation all season through, the winners will get great prices and exposure in social media and in the blog that will reach SkyRunner’s all over the world.
