Anton Krupicka came onto the ultra running scene when he took 1st place at the Leadville 100 Run in 2006. He was 22 years old. In 2007, he took 47 minutes off his time and won the heroic race, once again. That time still stands as the 3rd fastest on the course. Those highly celebrated wins helped Krupicka turn his passion of running in the natural world into a career. Currently, he is sponsored by La Sportiva, Buff, Petzl, Ultimate Direction, Zeal, and Stance.
Krupicka stopped by the basement in Denver, Colorado to talk about his upbringing in Nebreska, his back-to-back wins at the Leadville 100 Run, and how his pursuits in the outdoors have changed over the years. Enjoy!
