Salomon Broken Arrow Skyrace


The Broken Arrow Skyrace, presented by Salomon, is a three-day, five-distance event held at the world-famous Palisades Tahoe (previously Squaw Valley, and home of the 1960 Winter Olympics). On June 17-19 elite and recreational participants will come together from around the world to experience an unforgettable trail running experience “where the mountains meet the sky." We pride ourselves in providing an experience that runners of ALL ability levels can enjoy. 


Since its launch in 2016, the Broken Arrow Skyrace has emerged as one of the most competitive mountain/ultra/trail running (MUT) events in North America. Each year, we welcome some of the most talented trail and ultrarunning athletes from North America and around the world. This includes big-name athletes, as well as up-and-comers, including a growing number of young crushers who are transitioning from road and track to trail running.


To streamline the application process, we have created the Broken Arrow Skyrace Elite Recruitment and Application Program. These spots will be awarded to athletes with a legitimate shot at finishing on the podium. If you believe you might be eligible, please fill out and submit the application below. Please be aware, though, that there is a limited number of spaces and they will go quickly.
