Product Details


“Forsberg, an ultramarathon runner and “fulltime mountain athlete,” offers an inspiring view of life as an elite athlete in this memoir/guidebook, beautifully illustrated with photographs by her partner, mountain athlete Kilian Jornet. In this “book about life told from a running perspective,” Forsberg shares a singular story of devotion, integrity, and simplicity that will appeal to a broad readership.”
— Publishers Weekly

“Emelie Forsberg is a shining star in the trail running world, a true champion. In Sky Runner, she puts the same heart and soul into her writing as she does her mountain adventures. Emelieʼs passion and energy can be felt on every page, and will leave readers inspired.”
— Michael Ambrose, Endurance Marketing Manager for Salomon, North America

“Emelie’s experiences as an elite athlete are colorfully and playfully portrayed in Sky Runner. Her journey overflows with life lessons that any athlete will enjoy and learn from.”
– Jason Koop, Director of Coaching, CTS, Author of Training Essentials for Ultrarunning

“Emelie Forsberg is a genuine trailblazer, both on the mountain and in life. Sheʼs boldly parted from convention and chosen a path less trodden, one that is jagged and sheer, though infinitely more rewarding. Sky Runner is visually and poetically stunning. A must read for sky runners and anyone looking to be awed and inspired, as I was.”
— Dean Karnazes, ultramarathoner and New York Times bestselling author

“Read it: For a stunningly beautiful look inside the life of a world-class Sky Runner from Sweden. Inspirational stories of life in the mountains and practical advice for runners (training drills, plant-based recipes, mindfulness tips, yoga poses and more) are brought to life by the compelling photography shot by the authorʼs partner and fellow skyrunner, Kilian Jornet.”
– Women’s Running Magazine

“Emelie Forsbergʼs Sky Runner isnʼt simply a training manual… or a travelogue… or a cookbook… or a meditation on finding a meaningful path through the mountains and through life. Instead, itʼs all of these things and more, combined with stunning photography by Kilian Jornet that will spur you to start planning your next vacation immediately. An inspiring and open-hearted testament to Forsbergʼs love affair with running.”
– Alex Hutchinson, Outside columnist and author of Endure: Mind, Body, and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance
