KARPOS AND THE ROOKIE TEAM - THE FUTURE OF TRAIL RUNNING
The partnership between Karpos and the Rookie Team is the meeting of our young brand with these young trail runners. There is much more than that: the will to give a chance to talented athletes to show their potential, support for healthy unconsciousness that allows one to exceed ones limits and the appreciation for contagious enthusiasm that the kids express with their smiles.
The partnership with this group of trail runners is therefore a natural consequence of the Karpos philosophy and at the same time a way to reaffirm it.
Personal and athletic growth, fun and desire to improve. This is what the 8 boys and girls of the 2022 Rookie Team have in common: Arianna Dentis, Alice Testini, Manuela Pedrana, Nicol Canova, Alex Rigo, Fabio Carrara, Luca Farolfi and Lorenzo Mo. The young team that will take part in international events in the trail, vertical and trail running races is captained by Franco Collè and Giuditta Turini, multi time winner of the Tor des Géants and Karpos ambassador. With his advice and experience, Franco will know how to coach his athletes towards their objectives.
“Our goal is to let them mature as athletes but also as individuals by teaching them healthy values. Thanks to the Rookie Team they will be able to live a unique experience and share their passion for trail running with a bunch of their friends. We want to offer them technical support and mainly a patrimony of experiences.
