Yading SkyRun

The Yading Skyrun® begins in the centre of the Yading’s Shangri-La. After 3.5km of gradual downhill on a dirt track, the race hits its lowest point of 2860m before the real fun begins. Passing by a small charming village, runners hit single track which hugs the glacier-fed river through alpine forests and rugged vegetation.

The race continues uphill the whole time while crisscrossing the river four times over rugged wooden bridges to top out at a col strewn with multi-coloured Buddhist prayer flags. Here runners will have hit an altitude of 4,600m. Unlike previous years, there’s a higher peak to climb though, and with an additional journey to Yading. This race will be like no other!
