In our last blog post we brought you news from Chamonix where we launched Issue #10 and held a UTMB after-party with Stance Socks and Strava. Well we’re still buzzing from that experience which will live long in the memory; and is probably the reason why you are getting another blog post about it! But this time around we wanted to give something to those who weren’t there. So we have a special giveaway for you courtesy of Stance ambassador – and our favourite mountain man – Anton Krupicka.
We interviewed Anton whilst out in Chamonix about what he loved about UTMB. Whilst not running this year, Anton speaks candidly about the race’s importance not just for trail running, but alpinism in general. You can watch the video below – or jump over to LTW TV (where you’ll also find some of our other favourites!).
And so to the competition. Anton was kind enough to sign a couple of pairs of the latest Stance Fusion Run socks for us which are yours to win! All you have to do is tag a friend on Instagram and use the hashtag ‘#shareapair’. And of course your tagged friend will win a pair of Stance Socks too! We have one signed pair of guys socks (+friend) and one signed pair of gals socks (+friend). If you haven’t checked out Stance’s performance range already, you can do so here.
Here is the post to tag on Instagram (don’t forget to follow us if you aren’t already!)
*** N.b. The competition ends at midnight on Sunday 25th September ***
For more on Anton and the UTMB, we’d point you in the direction of Strava’s UTMB story. Although not running at UTMB, Anton couldn’t wait to spectate at the race. Oh, and solo ascended Mont Blanc whilst he was there! Anton’s style of single-push requires both running fitness and climbing competence. Running and climbing up Europe’s highest peak is no mean feet, which is why he is still an athlete at the forefront of mountain running. Go check it out.
