|2012 Skyrunner® World Series news|
New 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).
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.
