The Broken Arrow Skyrace, presented by Salomon, is a three-day event,
held at world-famous Squaw Valley, June 21-23, 2019.

Broken Arrow Skyrace represents a unique style of European-inspired mountain running characterized by off-trail scrambling, steep terrain, and massive amounts of vertical gain and loss. The majority of this takes place above 6,000 feet – above treeline – and consists of five iconic distances, each distance showcasing the beauty of Lake Tahoe, “The Jewel of the Sierra Nevada."

Elite and recreational participants will experience an unforgettable trail experience “where the mountains meet the sky.” The Broken Arrow Skyrace features five distances: a 52K, 26K, 11K, Vertical K and Kid's Race. Runners will be treated to spectacular views of Lake Tahoe’s sapphire-blue waters and Squaw Valley's unmistakable high-alpine terrain.

Participants will run and celebrate together with first-class food, craft beer, music, films and fun activities for the whole family.

Broken Arrow Skyrace is a 2019 UTMB Qualifying Race. The 52k is worth 2 points and the 26k 1 point. Points are applicable for all UTMB races (UTMB, CCC, TDS, OCC, PTL).
