The 2020 Philippine Skyrunning Championships will be held on Feb 1-2, 2020 at Tinongdan, Itogon, Benguet.

The National Vertical Kilometer and National Skyrunning Championship titles are at stake.

There will be five (5) race categories:
• KIDDIE AKYATHLON
• VERTICAL KILOMETER (NATIONAL VK CHAMPIONSHIPS)
• 10KM TRAIL RUN
• 25KM MOUNTAIN RUN
• 49KM SKYMARATHON (NATIONAL SKYRUNNING CHAMPIONSHIPS)

All categories will start and finish at Binga Gym (except for the VK, which will have a finish line at the summit of Mt. Inoman).

The courses feature magnificent views of Binga Lake, rice fields in remote villages, unspoiled pine forests, and hanging bridges crossing the mighty Agno River.

Runners must be prepared for steep ascents and descents and various natural challenges presented by the trails.

Each runner is expected to be self-sustaining with their own hydration gear and nutrition; however, medical/aid & water refilling stations will be available in multiple points along the route.
