La Sportiva and Kendal Mountain Festival are giving you the chance to win a pair of tickets to the La Sportiva Mountain Running Session feat. Anton Krupicka on November 18th, 2pm - 4:30pm
You will hear inspirational stories, films and top speakers from the world of mountain running with principle guest Anton Krupicka plus special guests Sarah Rowell, Robbie Britton, Natalie White and Damian Hall.
Anton Krupicka is famous as an American ultra-runner. He ran his first marathon when he was 12. During college and in his early 20s he often ran upwards of 200 miles a week. He has won the Leadville 100 twice, the Miwok 100K, the Rocky Raccoon 100 Miler, the Collegiate Peaks 50 Miler, the White River 50 Miler twice, the High Mountain 50k and the Estes Park Marathon. He also came in second in the Western States Endurance Run in 2010 in what would have been a course record time.
But don’t think Anton is all about running. Due to a string of injuries, this resident of Boulder, Colorado hasn’t raced the past few years, and he currently runs just one or two days a week. That doesn’t mean he’s disappeared from the ultra-running scene though, and he says he gets the same flow from climbing and skiing and cycling as he does from running. Last year he travelled to Patagonia with National Geographic Adventurer of the Year Colin Haley to climb peaks in the Fitzroy Massif, something that’s given him even more attention.
Krupicka sees himself as someone who loves to move in the mountains, and as a guy who loves music and literature, physics and philosophy. Someone who happens to run shirtless sometimes, and who’s had successes as an ultrarunner, a few years ago – and plans more. (Amaze your friends by being able to pronounce Anton’s surname: ‘crew-pitch-kuh’)
