*Dear competitors! We are all looking forward to a happy and more positive 2021. Like yourselves we are all keen to get back racing but with the future still unknown we have set up date safety nets for our first two races of 2021. This backup date is set, if Covid prevents us from running the Sky Run in March 2021. Please ensure you are available for both dates before entering the race.
Please notice, we had to change the backup date again:
BACKUP DATE SKY RUN 2021: 10/07/2021We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this decision, but we realized that the former published date was clashing with another race of the Skyrunner series. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us!
