The winter season of Sierra Nevada celebrated this weekend the I Edition of the Worldwide Championship SkySnow Running (SnowRunning), in which Spain is the second in the world achievieng three individual medals and one per team.
From Trangoworld we have supported this first call equipping the Spanish team with the most technical and lightweight material for winter mountain activities of maximum demand.
The TRX2 collection provides maximum protection and reliability in the most interns conditions, where climate risk is unpredictable. The jacket TRX2 850 LT Pro, of excellent thermal capacity, thanks to the feather padding European goose 100/0 of 850 COUINS, and the jacket TRX2 Grid Pro, Polartec PowerGrid, comfortable and breathable, and also of great thermal capcity, contribute to the best performance in extreme conditions.
In line with our link trail running at high altitudes, we support this new sport discipline, because it is maintained with the concept expanding the sport to winter races and lower altitudes (SkySnow's history was born running through snow fields and glaciers with crampons). Distances are relatively short and minimal vertical climbing without great technical difficulty, are a good recipe for rapid popularity among a large group of users in many countries where winter is covered with snow.
In addition, in our desire to seek the alternatives of innovation and diversification, as is the usual support of young talents and emerging sports, we believe that it is a good opportunity to approach athletes who love running in colder seasons.
In this edition, which will be held every two years, 60 runners of 15 nationalities have participated in two modalities: Vertical and Classic. The Spanish team was the largest, logically as host, with 10 dorsals of the 60 of the competition.
Skysnow Vertical (4,3k/d+950m)
With a total cut of 4,3km and 950 meters of positive slope accumulated, the Swedish Lina El Kott Helander and the Italian Luca Del Pero were made with gold in this speciality. Spain has made a double with two metals in the women's category with a sikver medal for Silvia Lara and bronze for Virginia Pérez. Naira Irigoyen, Daniel Osanz and Diego Díaz have placed in the Top10 World Cup.
Skysnow Classic (12,7k/d+920m)
A distance of more than 12km and with an accumulated positive slope of 920m, the race became somewhat harder due to the soft snow at low altitudes.
Again Virginia Pérez and Luca Del Pero got back on the podium, this time both with the gold medal. Also Naira Irigoyen and Diego Díaz sneaked back into the Top10 world and added another Spanish to the classication as the case of Eduard Hernández.
With these results Spain has played a good role and achieved the runners-up in the world by teams behind Italy.
