Marino Giacometti, ISF President, 评论, “We’re very proud and pleased to present the 2018 World Championships in the beautiful Scottish Highlands and, with the organisation of Skyline Scotland, we are confident the events will be a perfect showcase for Skyrunning attracting the world’s best athletes for some intense competition on this technical terrain.”
VERTICAL – Salomon Mamores VK®: 星期四 13日 九月
The celebrations open with the Salomon Mamores VK on Thursday 13日 九月. The race has already proven to be unique within the Vertical Kilometer® World Circuit with its very Scottish take on the Vertical Kilometer® format. Over a 5km distance, the route gains 1,000m from sea level, initially on good trails before breaking out of the tree line and tackling the flanks of Na Gruagaichean direct. This section is steep and rough, before a wonderful rocky ridge leads to the 1056m-high Munro summit with panoramic views in all directions.

ULTRA – Salomon Ben Nevis Ultra™: 星期五 14日 九月
The ULTRA world champions will be determined at the Salomon Ben Nevis Ultra™ on Friday 14日九月. The current Salomon Ben Nevis Ultra course will be redesigned from the 2017 version to fit the new Skyrunning criteria, which includes a maximum course length of 66km and running time of 16 小时. 该 2018 route will still incorporate the spectacular summit of Britain’s highest mountain, 本尼维斯. Subject to spring testing the new Ultra will be ±65km, with ±4,000m+ vertical climb and a greater focus on mountain and ridge running compared to 2017, but avoiding the most technical ground which is reserved for the flagship Salomon Glen Coe Skyline™ race.

SKY – Salomon Ring of Steall SkyRace®: 星期六 15日 九月
The Salomon Ring of Steall SkyRace® race has proven a popular choice for runners and the 2018 edition will decide who are the SKY world champions on a classic 29km Skyrunning course that features 2,500m of vertical climb on uncompromising mountain terrain that includes easy scrambling, steep ascents, ridge traverses and technical descents.
赛事总监沙恩·奥利说, “Salomon Skyline Scotland has exploded from nothing to the pinnacle mountain running event in the world in just three years. It’s a phenomenal rate of change and organising the event has been some journey! It will be an honour to be trusted with the Skyrunning World Championships in 2018 and I look forward to welcoming the world’s best mountain runners back to Scotland next September.”
He continued, “There is of course a huge amount of work to do to prepare for the 2018 Skyrunning世锦赛, not least liaising with many stakeholders and landowners who have supported this event from the start”.
Over the previous editions, Salomon Skyline Scotland™ have already attracted many of the world’s elite Skyrunners including: Stian Angermund-Vik, Maite Maiora, Laura Orgué, Emelie Forsberg, Sheila Avilés, Marco De Gasperi, Jan Margarit, Alexis Sévennec, Kiril Nikolov, Pascal Egli, Hillary Gerardi, Mira Rai, Tom Owens, Malene Blikken Haukøy, Bhim Bahadur Gurung, Max King, Megan Kimmel, Jonathan Albon, Ragna Debats, Oihana Azkorbebeitia, Mira Rai, and of course Kilian Jornet.
With three of the 所罗门天际线苏格兰 races becoming exclusively World Championship races in 2018, 该 所罗门葛伦·科天际线 (to take place on the final day – Sunday 16th September) will now be the only Skyline Scotland race on the Migu Run Skyrunner®世界大赛 in the new SKY EXTRA category.
