In 2003 La Sportiva formed the premier trail running team in North America. The idea was to support and grow the sport by supporting the people who are the heart of the trail running culture. Each year La Sportiva Athletes push the boundaries of what is possible on and off the trail all while acting as an Ambassador for the brand and sharing their experiences with the outdoor community.

The La Sportiva Mountain Running Team consists of some of the strongest trail running athletes out there and they represent La Sportiva from their hometowns to international venues. These athletes are recognized as the best of the best and maintain a consistent level of professionalism, performance and media coverage in the trail running community.
