2015 Flagstaff Sky Race

As the finale of the 2015 U.S. Skyrunner Series, the Flagstaff Sky Race in the altitude of Arizona featured a Vertical Kilometer and then two trail races—a 39K and a 55K, reaching heights of 11,500 feet above sea level before finishing at the Arizona Snowbowl at 9,200 feet.

The 55K was won by 26-year-old Daniel Kraft in 5:49:22, edging out Gabe McGowan by five minutes. The fastest woman was 19-year-old Ashley Erba of Boulder, Colo., who crossed in 6:47:52 (and placed seventh overall). In the 39K, Martin Anthamatten of Switzerland won in 3:59:15, edging out noted mountain runner Joe Gray of Colorado Springs.
