SCARPA’s live experience at TORX 2022
On September 13 and 14, SCARPA, a Gold TORX 2022 partner, organized an immersive experience together with the competing athletes.
Between September 9 and 18, the Tor des Géants, the international Trail Running competition, took place. For the 2022 edition, Gold partner SCARPA organized an experience for its guests: two days immersed in the race in close contact with the runners on September 13 and 14.
“The TORX experience is extraordinary, extreme and unique on a sporting but also emotional level. This is why we are delighted to be a partner of this internationally exclusive event, to which we are linked by values that are inescapable for those who are moved by a profoundly sporting spirit and love of the mountains. The two-day initiative we promoted allowed our guests to experience even more closely and in touch with nature their relationship with trail running” said Marco De Gasperi, Brand Manager of SCARPA.
Speaking of Team SCARPA, on the other hand, ultrarunner Silvia Ainoha Trigueros Garrote participated again in the competition by taking the second step of the podium in the TOR330 – Tor des Géants, behind British Sabrina Verjee. Marco De Gasperi comments on the results this way, “Winning the TOR once is already an epic feat for an athlete, the crowning of a dream. To win the podium four times represents something extraordinary. We can only be proud that an athlete like Silvia, together with the other heroes of our Team, represents the company in the world’s most important trail running competitions.”
And it was on this occasion that SCARPA previewed its new trail running footwear models. Among them we find Spin Planet, comfortable from the first fit. Spin Planet, moreover, is made from recycled materials: the lining is recycled microfiber, the upper is made from 100% recycled yarns, the midsole from 45% recycled EVA, and the tread from 30% recycled rubber.
