It is finally here, the start of the 2015 Skyrunner® Series UK commences this weekend over the classic Welsh 3000’s in the heart of Wales.
An epic challenge awaits each and every participant as they cover 55 km’s, 15-peaks and over 4000m’s of vertical gain. ‘Where earth meets Sky’ is our ethos and the Welsh 3000’s will provide this in abundance.
Providing a classic mountain challenge, the V3K provides a point-to-point race over a route that has become revered for many a runner and walker. Crib Goch needs little introduction and provides the toughest section of the whole route.
Starting in the early hours of Saturday morning, the V3K offers an incredible challenge because of the successive ascents and descents. It’s a tough challenge and one that must not be underestimated.
Over 140 participants will toe the line in the 2nd edition of the V3k. It’s just the start the 2015 series needs and with follow on events such as The Peak Sky Race the 2015 series looks seriously exciting. Especially with the inclusion of 2 new races: The Lakes Sky Ultra and The Glen Coe Skyline.
It has always been a long-term aim to bring the Worlds best mountain runners to our shores and provide a showcase for our sport to expand and grow. Following on from Salomon Running athlete, Stevie Kremer racing at The Mourne Skyline MTR, we hope to have some exciting news and announcements for later in the year for Skyrunning UK’s future races.
But first the V3K and the exciting challenge of the Welsh 3000’s!
