It was the Skyrunning UK AGM in the English Lakes on the weekend of the 14th and 15th November. As you can imagine, it was a busy weekend with a great many plans discussed for 2016.
We will announce the 2016 calendar as soon as possible. Please keep an eye on this website and the Skyrunning UK Facebook page. To clarify, we are currently waiting for land permission rights to be granted so that dates can be confirmed.
To keep you all excited and on your toes, Skyrunning UK are pleased to announce several key changes that will be implemented in 2016.
All Skyrunning UK races in 2016 will have a minimum prize purse of £500 awarded as £125, £75 and £50 for 1st, 2nd and 3rd male and female.
The Skyrunning UK Series will be implemented in 2016 and at the end of the year a male and female champion will be crowned. Points are awarded as outlined HERE. To qualify for the series, runners must participate and finish in a minimum of 4-races. Points are accumulated and the male and the female with the most points are the Skyrunning UK 2016 Series Campions. It is possible to run all Skyrunning UK races and use your best 4 performances for the ranking.

In addition to prize money awarded at each race, the male and female 2016 Skyrunning UK Champions will receive:
- Free entry into all Skyrunning UK races in the following year.
