Philipp Reiter is an incredible talent, Philipp has recently won the Zugspitze 100km race, placed 3rd at Ice Trail Tarentaise and he has adorned podiums all over the world. Coming from a Ski Mountaineering background, Philipp is one of the new stars of Skyrunning.

Marino Giacometti President of the ISF, an Italian mountaineer who, with a handful of fellow climbers, pioneered records and races on Mont Blanc and Monte Rosa in the Italian Alps in the early ‘90’s.  In 1993, with the support of the multinational Fila as sponsor, Skyrunning took off across the world’s mountain ranges with a circuit of awe inspiring races stretching from the Himalayas to the Rockies, from Mount Kenya to the Mexican volcanoes.  After all, Giacometti’s term skyrunning*, as the name suggests, is where earth and sky meet.

Dr Roi (Sky Doc) graduated in Medicine from the University of Milan, where he specialised (residency) in Sports Medicine.  He is a founder of the International Skyrunning Federation (IFS) and well known as “Skydoctor”. He published scientific papers on sports medicine and particularly on physiological aspects of running at altitude and endurance events also for transplanted patients. He was temporary professor of Biomechanics at the Faculty of Motor Sciences of Milan and presently is temporary professor of Functional Recovery at the University of Verona. He is currently the director of the Education and Research Department of the Isokinetic Medical Group in Bologna (Italy), mainly involved in functional recovery of injured professional and amateur athletes.

Ian Corless is an ex cyclist, triathlete and now runner. He is the host and creative director of an ultra running podcast, Talk Ultra. He also runs a very successful website, that provides up to the minute news and imagery from the ultra and Skyrunning world. Ian works closely with Skyrunning and is a media partner for all events.
