The Vertical World Circuit ranking system developed by the International Skyrunning Federation is based on the results of five out of ten races in 2017.
VWC individual points system
Each race assigns points based on the men’s/women’s overall categories: 100-88-78-72-68-66-64-62-60-58-56-54-52-50 down to 2 points. The top 20 men and top 10 women are ranked. (In the event of a tie, the best result of the last race in the calendar will be counted). An extra 20% points are awarded at the circuit final, the SHKP Vertical Run for Charity: Race to Hong Kong ICC on December 3, 2017.

HK$ 106,000 are awarded to the top three ranked men and women: (1st HK$ 31,800 / 2nd HK$ 13,600 / 3rd HK$ 7,600).
