Skyrunning was founded in 1992 by Italian Marino Giacometti, President of the International Skyrunning Federation which sanctions the discipline worldwide and sports the tagline: “Less cloud. More Sky”.
The Skyrunner® World Series was launched in 2004 and has grown to represent the peak of outdoor running defined by altitude and technical difficulty.
In 2018 the Series comprises two disciplines: Sky Classic and the new Sky Extra (merging Sky Extreme and Sky Ultra). The Migu Run Skyrunner® World Series features 18 races in 12 countries on three continents.
The Series is supported by title sponsor Migu Run and partners Compressport and Scott.
