record 31 members took part, and, while the personal contact was missing it was inspiring to have no less than 53 participants on screen from across the world.

After the assembly, the ISF is represented in a total of 45 nations, split between full members, associate members and aspirant members.

The assembly was chaired by Marino GiacomettiPresident and  Silvio CalviVice President, International Relations. The President’s Report outlined:

  • current situation based on the Covid19 pandemic.
  • postponement of the World Championships to 2021.
  • Plan B was proposed and approved to create a Continental circuit.
  • proposal for a Strategic Plan
  • the successful Youth Championships with the participation of 28 countries in 2019, are re-confirmed in 2021 in L’Aquila, Italy.
  • a new skyrunning discipline called “SkySnow” was approved.

The current pandemic situation is ongoing and the 2021 calendar unclear. The future is not ours to see, as the 1950’s song says, but skyrunning is on an upward climb with an ever-stronger federation working for “Less cloud. More sky!”
