Science And ResearchSkyrunning stretches across the world's major mountain ranges from the Alps to the Caucasus, from the Canaries to the Rockies and the mountains of South East Asia. From sea to sky, the races comprise enormous vertical climbs: from the short steep Vertical Kilometer® to the Ultra SkyMarathon®. Since its inception, the International Skyrunning Federation has studied these incredible athletes and their performance, monitoring key parameters such as psychological and physical stress in competition – in the field – at high altitude. Arc'teryx shares this commitment to research, creating products that address total comfort and protection during the most extreme outdoor activities in a wide range of climatic situations, whatever the altitude.
