The International Skyrunning Federation has developed a label to recognize races with an official “stamp of approval”. The project, aimed at strongly identifying the characteristics of the sport, was approved at the General Assembly in 2017.
Various factors are taken into consideration, from the basic parameters of distance, vertical climb, altitude, etc to the quality of the field, the finishing time as well as a specially developed algorithm. Ratings are from 0 to a maximum of 5. Races that don’t meet the minimum requirements will not be included.
Main factors taken into account:
(*) Skyrunner® World Series & ISF Championships
All races already approved by an ISF Referee for Skyrunner® World Series, Skyrunning World and Continental Championships will be automatically recognised as ISF Qualified Races.
