2018 will be the 4th edition of this epic and iconic mountain race, and this year we have accepted 67% of the applications. This means we have turned down 33% of the applications, which is almost identical to the statistics for the previous editions of the race:

 

Year Successful Applications Unsuccessful Applications
2015 ~70% ~30%
2016 ~70% ~30%
2017 68% 32%
2018 67% 33%

 

A number of elite entry slots are being held back for the International Skyrunning Federation's (ISF) nominated athletes, and of course Salomon are again sending a very strong international team including defending champions Kilian Jornet and Emelie Forsberg. Although the elite runners from the ISF and Salomon do not yet appear on the entry list, they are included in our calculation for the total number of entries. It is our intention to have less than 300 competitors, and therefore the 2018 race is sold out and it was not necessary after vetting to hold a ballot for the non-elite entries. For the record, even the elite runners are subject to the same vetting procedure.

With three days of Skyrunning World Championships races before the 2018 edition of the Salomon Glen Coe Skyline® we are expecting the atmosphere to be electric when the runners toe the line for one of the world's greatest technical mountain races this September. Welcome to Skyline Scotland™.
