Fri, 08/10/2021 - 11:14 -- motta.erica

Last weekend we were in Torre Pellice (IT) for the first edition of the Plogging Wolrd Championship, a unique race where trail running and trash collection are combined. The ploggers collected a total of 795 kilos of waste, covering over 1,780 km of trails and with an average of almost half a kilo of waste every kilometer. Since the TORX® was qualifying race for the World Championship, many Giants were on the starting line, like Marina Plavan (second at TOR450 - Tor des Glaciers) and Pablo Criado Toca (team SCARPA and top runner). Thumbs up for Francesco Filippi, qualifiyed with TOR130 - Tot Dret, who gained the third place of the world ranking with a really huge mass of particular waste!
Congratulations to all participants, to Cooperativa Erica who created the championship and to SCARPA who sponsorized the event.
That's the kind of the partnership we believe in!
