Anton (Tony) Krupicka is one of the young stars of ultra-running in the US. His 2006 wins at the Leadville 100 miler and Leadville, Estes Park, and American Discovery Trail Marathon as well as his 2007 wins at the Rocky Raccoon 100 miler, Collegiate Peaks 50 miler, and Leadville 100 miler make him a rising star on the ultra circuit. Nominated for an Everest Award in 2007, Anton continues to train in hopes of increasing his presence in the ultra scene.

A minimalist in running and life, Anton strives for simplicity. He graduated in 2005 from the Colorado College and is currently pursuing a master’s degree (geology) at Montana State University while running as much as possible.
