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. These factors are essentials for the first step: ISF Qualified Course. Races that don’t meet the minimum requirements will not be included.
Races already approved as ISF Championships and internatinal circuits, considering the global value in term of organisation and athletes participation will be ISF Qualified Races.
Main factors taken into account:
(*) Skyrunner® World Series & ISF Championships
