It’s a cross country race through mountainous terrain apt for people above 18 years of age that are on constant physical activity and have an overall good state of health. The route goes from 1230 meters above sea level (4,035 feet) to 2030 m.a.s.l. (9,940 feet); with different climates as it climbs from Yolosa to Chuspipata.
- All participants that finish the SKYRACE are called SKYRUNNERS
- A SKYRACE can be compared to a marathon or an Ironman race in the amount of physical and mental demand.
- BOLIVIA offers with the Andes and the Yungas (tropical andes) a natural base to practice SKYRUNNING with its extreme heights and climbs.
