SkyRunning races series are very popular in Europe – mountain races that are very steep, and sometimes extremely steep. Vertical Kilometer races are races in which the positiva altitude change (ascent) is 1000 meters and the length of the path should be as short as possible – less than 5 km.
Our team organized two Vertical Kilometer races last year (2013) organized two on Popova Shapka ski centre terrain – named Ceripasina Vertical Kilometer.
This 2014 we will make several editions of this race which attracted good interest among runners and mountaineers – we already done one race in January for the first time under snow conditions The video of this event can be seen at this link: https://vimeo.com/85801725
This September we organized for the first time – a shortest and steepest race – in the wild areas of Shar Mountain range – Middle Rock Vertical Kilometer – 3900 m long with 1000 m ascent.
