About Anton Krupicka:  Besides being a two time Leadville 100 champion Anton has created a name for himself around his trail style, (almost Forest Gump-esque hair) and minimalist attire. He often runs without a shirt and with very lightweight minimal running shoes. He ran his first marathon when he was twelve. During college and in his early 20s he often ran upwards of 200 miles a week. Krupicka is featured in the film Indulgence: 1000 Miles Under The Colorado Sky which chronicles his Summer 2007 training leading up to the Leadville Trail 100.
