International Skyrunning Federation

ABOUT ISF

The International Skyrunning Federation represents the governing authority of skyrunning - defined as mountain running above 2,000m over extremely technical trails. Three disciplines define the sport which are not just based on distance, but vertical climb and technical difficulty: Sky, Ultra and Vertical.

OUR HISTORY

“Skyrunning” has been around for some time. Hundreds, even thousands of years ago mountains were negotiated out of necessity: war, religious persecution, hunting, smuggling, or just out of plain old curiosity. The concept of running up and down mountains for fun is much newer.

ABOUT SKYRUNNING

From sea to sky, skyrunning spans the great outdoors, across the world’s mountain ranges…and the imagination of thousands of participants and fans. It’s a sport born in the wild, where the logic was to reach the highest peak in the shortest time from a town or village.

CERTIFIED & QUALIFIED LABELS

Following an in-depth analysis, a new system has been developed awarding skyrunning races with two different labels: “Certified Course” and “Qualified Race”
