"An incredible leg burning and lung-busting ascent from sea level to Munro summit - an epic vertical challenge!"
The Salomon Mamores VK™ follows the well established International Skyrunning Federation Vertical Kilometer® format, in which participants follow a marked course gaining 1000m of height in less than 5km. Participants are set off at timed intervals with the winner having the fastest overall time to the summit.
Whilst physically arduous, the Salomon Mamores VK™ route does not include technical terrain that requires any scrambling or rock climbing experience. As such, the race is suitable for any runner who is up for the challenge.
In 2021, the Salomon Mamores VK™ featured in the VK OPEN Championship by the International Skyrunning Federation.
