#MYSKYRACE: The exclusive new training and racing plan. Know before you go!

Published by Mountainblog on .



Race cancellations, lockdowns, travel restrictions? Today, the International Skyrunning Federation launches a unique new project focussing on training outdoors and planning a future race…with a secret weapon.

 #MYSKYRACE has been created to offer skyrunners of all levels a unique preview of their own potential in a given race – in advance. In other words, “know before you go!

#MYSKYRACE brings benefits to race organisers too. Knowing the level of their participants is an important safety feature and can be useful in organising staged starts and finish time limits. Likewise, runners knowing their potential in the race brings a huge advantage.

Setting personal goals has never been easier. For the first time, personalised information based on biometrics will help runners to know their estimated finishing time and to know their calorie consumption to plan their nutrition.

The #MYSKYRACE project is based on an exclusive algorithm developed from scientific research studies carried out on skyrunners over the years and has recently been further elaborated.Other data, such as the athlete’s body mass index and fitness level are confirmed as well as comparisons to other levels together with race data such as the GPX, the amount of ascent and descent and their incline at varying altitudes.

There are nearly 90 races to choose from on the ongoing ISF Certified Course list.

To kick off the #MYSKYRACE project, runners can select their personalised plan with a special offer: three races for the price of two for just €10.
Not sure which races to choose? Pick one now and decide the other two later.

For peace of mind, insurance cover for both racing and training has been integrated to back up the scheme (at the present time only available in Europe).

With many races cancelled or postponed this year, #MYSKYRACE is the ideal plan to motivate runners to know their potential – at home, in training or in an actual race – before they go!

This is just the first step of the #MYSKYRACE plan which will be further developed throughout the season to benefit both runners and race organisers.
