I never thought i would know anything about trail running... Let alone having any clue about "Skyrunning"
Then I ended up doing PR work for a trail running event company and helped organizing trail running and adventure races in different Asian countries.
In 2015 I helped organizing more than 20 trail running events including 2 press conferences across Asia. I went to beautiful mountain areas in Shangrila (mainland China), Lijiang (mainland China), Mao Kong (Taiwan), Janda Baik (Malaysia), Singapore and Hong Kong.
Janda Baik, Malaysia
Shangrila & Lijiang, Mainland China
In 2015 I glanced and edited more than 40,000 stunning outdoor sports photos.
In 2015 I also got to know 1 extreme sports term - "Skyrunning".
Skyrunning is defined as running in the mountains above 2,000m altitude where the climbing difficulty does not exceed II° grade and the incline is over 30%. (Source: International Skyrunning Federation)
And I got to meet the president (left 1)and the vice president (left 2) of International Skyrunning Federation who invented "Skyrunning".
Thanks for letting me borrow your jacket btw...
With all that being said, I would not call my 2015 boring... as it is always full of excitement and surprises.
