2014 SWS – Less cloud. More Sky

Fifteen quality races, three disciplines, the same winning formula. The 2014 Skyrunner® World Series offers benefits amounting to 1,000 race slots, 230 free entries, 125 accommodation slots and 50 travel slots.


Five Sky, five Ultra and five Vertical races are distributed across six nations in three continents.


462 kilometres are set off by no less than 36,150 metres vertical climb with inclines between 16% and 50%. Distance + Vertical = Skyrunning.


The reward for this gruelling programme? Benefits amounting to US $ 200,000. $ 120,000 cash prizes, $ 25,000 World Series final prizes and $ 55,000 worth of benefits.


Legendary, iconic and prestigious events make up the calendar, with the Vertical races doubling up at Sky and Ultra events.  The only new entry - set in the rugged Montana mountains - looks set to make its mark with a 50K Ultra and America’s first World Series Vertical Kilometer®.
