The Skyrunner® World Series was launched in 2004 and has grown to represent the peak of outdoor running defined by altitude and technical difficulty. The objective of the Skyrunner® World Series is to test the best elite athletes  in the world on some of the most spectacular and technical sky races to determine who the best skyrunners in the world are.
