Mt Awa Skyrace organizers have made the decision to change the VK and the Skyrace due to safety issues. Weather and avalanche control specialists have warned that there is a high risk of avalanche and in some places along the course, runners could sink deep in the snow and get injured. Since safety is our number one priority, the following changes have been made:

  • Vertical Kilometer: Runners will not reach the peak, but finish at the 8th station. It’s absolutely forbidden to continue to the top, as this could cause an avalanche. Any athlete doing so will be disqualified.
  • Mt Awa Skyrace: The race goes through the same route until km 13. Near the 5th station, the course then goes up to the 8th station and back to the same track. The descend will be the original route to the finish. The new distance and the altitude gain will be around 23km 1600m+

The race is still a very challenging mountain run that should not be underestimated. Runners should therefore ensure they have the following Mandatory Equipment:

Vertical Kilometer (Saturday 20th) – Plan A equipment:

  • Windproof jacket (there are no bags transported to the finish line)

Mount Awa Skyrace (Sunday 21th) – Plan A equipment:

  • Windproof jacket
  • Mountain running shoes
  • Socks
  • Survival blanket
  • 500 ml or more of water
  • Foods (gel • bar)
  • whistle
  • mobile phone
