LIVESTREAM ON RACE DAY
UltraSignup, the leading marketplace and registration platform for endurance events, will produce and serve as the presenting sponsor of the livestream for The Broken Arrow Skyrace in June 2023. As a platform that has specialized in connecting participants with endurance events for over 15 years, UltraSignup has a deep understanding of the endurance community and what it takes to showcase the excitement, drama, and amazing accomplishments of the athletes at the Broken Arrow Skyrace. The Broken Arrow vision to create an event that celebrates the accomplishments of all participants, is something that UltraSignup shares and is dedicated to capturing through the livestream.
"We are honored to partner with UltraSignup for our livestream production," said Brendan Madigan, Co-Race Director for the Broken Arrow Skyrace. "Their expertise in the endurance space is unparalleled and we know they will do an excellent job showcasing the excitement and drama of this world-class event."
The livestream will feature live footage from the 23k, the VK, and some aspects of the Iron Face Challenge as well as interviews with athletes and race organizers. The VK and 23k are both Gold races in the 2023 World Mountain Running Association World Cup, while the 23k is also a Golden Trail National Series race for North America. The 10-hour, live broadcast – replete with aerial footage, unique course segment flybys, embedded racer cams, and in-race athlete commentary – will be hosted by professional ultrarunners Corrine Malcom (Adidas Terrex), Dylan Bowman (of Freetrail), Courtney Dauwalter and more.
The Broken Arrow 26K course showcases some of Palisades Tahoe’s most famous terrain, including Emigrant Pass (elevation 8,750 feet), the jagged terrain of KT-22, unrivaled views into Granite Chief Wilderness, and the famous “Stairway to Heaven” ladder, which runners climb to the top of Washeshu Peak. From the valley floor at 6,200 feet, runners will ascend nearly 5,000 feet as they circumnavigate the heralded terrain of North America's most rugged and extreme ski resort.
UltraSignup is the leading marketplace and registration platform for trail and ultra races in the United States. Runners can use UltraSignup.com to discover and choose from more than 5000 races.

“We have always said that whether you finish first or last, at the Broken Arrow Skyrace, YOU are a rock star,” says co-race director, Brendan Madigan. “We have – and will continue – to push for progress in the sport trail running, but we will never abandon the “old school” culture, tradition, and values that make our sport so special. UltraSignup understands that sports can be a powerful force for bringing people together. We are delighted to be partnering with them as we invite our viewers to join the Broken Arrow community for over 10-hours on race weekend.”
