What does Katarína Ludvíková wear to run?

I love Kilpi clothing. And it's not just because I like it. It is mainly practical, which I can appreciate. Every year I take part in several tens of cycling and running races, often longer than 100 kilometers, and I need to rely not only on my strengths and experience but also on quality clothing. I choose my clothing very carefully because even the slightest imperfection easily turns into suffering in the form of abrasions and bruises during the race. I already have a lot of experience with Kilpi cycling clothes for years, so I was very pleased with the extended collection for running. This year I have a few challenging running races, so I'm glad to get the Kilpi clothes, which I have tried and tested.
Anyone who has ever raced or just enjoyed running, certainly knows how important it is to have a functional and comfortable outfit. It is not primarily about the clothing brand, but about how it is cut, what material and how well it is sewn. The clothing that is not perfect fit, the pressing seams or when you sweat excessively, it can make the whole race bad and affect the psychological and physical well-being. It can even affect overall performance and placement. Running clothing must, therefore, be primarily functional and comfortable. If it's also interesting for design, it's a nice bonus. I'm pleased that the Kilpi clothing is such. It will be my great helper in all the races I'm going to make.
For this year's season, I have chosen a functional WILKE T-shirt with long sleeves and SUNBOW T-shirt, GAROVE cotton T-shirt with short sleeves, long sleeves KALEWA and TREE, SAMANA 3/4 elastic pants and long elastic TENORA pants, light RAINAR jacket, stretch HORIZON fleece sweater and SEPTIMA cycling jersey. I then extended the whole equipment to the absolutely cool batoh CADENCE running/cycling backpack, which I had the opportunity to try at several races and I am very excited about it. The top Salming Trail T3 running shoes, when I leave out my leisure sweatshirt, are the last piece.
This year I will take part in tens of bigger and smaller races, but among my biggest challenges and the perfect opportunity to fully test Kilpi clothing are these selected races:
- RUN 111 - Running Ultramarathon 111 km
- ROAD 2222 - Ultramarathon on road bikes
- MTB 555 - Ultramarathon
- MTB ISOMA 1000 Miles Adventure - Ultramarathon across the Czech republic and Slovakia
- Jihlavská 24 MTB - race for 24 hours
- Heavy Well - a 24-hour race
- MTB Gigathlon - as a member of MTB relay
I believe that you too will appreciate the quality and comfort of Kilpi cycling or running and you will be happy with him as well as me and my entire family. I will be glad to see you at one of the races and wish you a lot of sports experiences and successes.
