La revista Evasión entrevistó a nuestro atleta del BUFF® Pro Team Anton Krupicka, aprovechando su estancia en Barcelona. Queremos compartirla para que podáis conocer más de cerca uno de los mejores trail runners  de larga distancia del momento. ¡Disfrutad!

¿Cómo empezó tu afición por el trail running?

Empecé a correr cuando era muy joven. Corrí mi primera maratón cuando  solo tenía 12 años y desde un buen principio me dediqué a las largas distancias, pero no fue hasta el 2006 que corrí mi primera carrera de Ultra Trail.

Siempre he corrido para conectar con la naturaleza y la montaña. Correr Ultra Trails era un modo natural de encontrar la forma de ganarme la vida y al mismo tiempo poder pasar más tiempo en la montaña.

¿Cuáles crees que son tus habilidades?

Disfruto igual subir como bajar, pero en terreno llano no soy bueno. Soy bueno en las subidas pero no soy el más rápido en la primera montaña, aunque sí en la segunda, tercera y la cuarta montaña. Esto hace que atrape a los otros corredores más adelante. Además, entreno a diario por terrenos técnicos, así que en lugares donde la mayoría de la gente tiene más dificultad, yo voy más rápido.

¿Cuál es tu estilo de vida?

Para mí el correr en sí siempre ha sido más que el competir. Disfruto compitiendo, por el estilo de vida que conlleva este deporte. No obstante, para mí correr es estar básicamente en las montañas, disfrutar del entorno y del paisaje y siempre espero poder aprender algo de las montañas. Esta es la principal razón por la que corro.

Cuando corro no llevo demasiado equipamiento, ya que contra menos lleves más rápido te mueves. Esta es mi filosofía cuando corro y obviamente esto también lo aplico en muchos otros aspectos de mi vida, porque el principal objetivo de mi vida es correr. Por tanto, me gusta mantener pocas cosas materiales y así puedo viajar de un lugar a otro con facilidad.

¿Cómo describirías tu día perfecto?

Un día perfecto para mí es levantarme en mi furgoneta en las montañas, normalmente en Colorado, tomarme un café y salir a correr durante 2,3 ó 4 horas, hacer diferentes cimas y después refrescarme en el río. Por las tardes me gusta relajarme, tomándome un café, leyendo un libro, navegando por Internet, y quizás voy a correr otra vez o quizas no. Después, cenar y a dormir hasta el día siguiente. Una vida sencilla pero que realmente disfruto.

¿Dónde te gusta más competir?

Las carreras en España y Europa son bastante distintas a las de EEUU. En Europa el volumen de espectadores  y el ambiente es incomparable, las competiciones son muy duras y el nivel es muy alto. En EEUU no es tan popular y no hay tanta afición, pero te recompensa de otra manera, más relajada. Pero me gusta mucho competir en los dos lados.

Pienso que España es el país más fuerte en lo que atletas de montaña se refiere, pues hay gente como Kilian Jornet, Miguel Heras, Iker Karrera, Tòfol Castanyer, Núria Picas, Emma Roca… ¡los mejores atletas de este deporte! Y como son tan buena gente, me gusta venir a España, salir con ellos y conocerlos mejor. Esta es una de las principales razones por las que me gusta competir en Europa y pasar el rato con los atletas.

Evasion Magazine had the opportunity to make an interview to our athlete of BUFF® Pro Team Anton Krupicka, while he was at Barcelona. We share it with you, because we want that you can discover all the details of one of the best Ultra Trail runners in the world.

How started your trail running passion?

I started running in a very young age. I’ve run my first marathon when I was 12 and in a long distance for a very beginning. But it was until 2006 when I’ve run my first Ultra Trail race.

I’ve always done running to connect with the natural landscape and mountains. And running Ultra Trails was a natural way of making a living in this world and to spend more time at the mountain.

Which are your skills?

I enjoy up and down, but flat running I’m not good. I’m good going up hills, but I’m not the faster at the first hill but at the second, third and fourth hill I’m almost fast as I was at the first time. I catch people later in the race. Besides of this, I d technical train every day, so that’s the reason because where people have more difficulties, I run faster.

Which is your lifestyle?

Running for me is more than just racing. I really enjoy racing for the lifestyle of this sport. However, for me running is to be closer to the mountains, enjoy the landscape and I always hopeful learn something the mountains every day. That’s the main reason I run.

When I run don’t take a lot of features because the less you carry, the faster you move. That’s my philosophy when I run and obviously that applies in the rest of my life, because the focus of my life is running in the mountains. Just a few materials things and you can travel around more easily.

How is your perfect day?

 A perfect day for me is waking up in my track, in the mountains, usually in Colorado, drinking a cup of coffee, running for 2, 3 or 4 hours throughout different summits and then wash me up to the river. In the afternoon I like to relax myself, usually drinking a coffee, reading a book, looking Internet, and maybe I go for another run or maybe not. After my dinner I’m going to the bed till the following day. It’s a simple life but I really enjoy.

Where do you prefer to compete?

Main races in Spain and Europe are a quiet different than USA. In Europe there are a lot of spectators and the environment is incomparable, the competitions are very deep as well the level. In USA is not popular, not supporters communities but it reward in a different way, more relaxing. But I like both a lot.

I think Spain is maybe the strongest country I’ve ever seen in terms of the main mountain runners, like Núria Picas, Emma Roca… the best athletes in this sport! They are also good people, and for this reason I like to come to Spain, going out with them and getting know them better. That’s one of the main reasons because I like to compete in Europe and spend my time with the athletes.
