I just received an email from my friend and CEO of Barefoot Running University, Jason Robillard. A friend of his has organized a barefoot running track meet in Rockford, Michigan. Here is the information:
Barefoot Track Meet
WHEN: Friday, August 13th, 7pm
WHERE: Rockford North Middle School Track,
397 E Division Street Northeast, Rockford, MI
WHAT: 440, 880, 1mi, 2mi, and 3mi in nothing but the bare of your barefeet [or some interesting MINIMAL footwear, if your feet can’t take it…]
WHY: because we can, to raise awareness of barefoot running, and for a groovy homemade medal!
Hope some of you can make it! On a closely related note- a few of us will be giving a barefoot/minimalist shoe running presentation on Tuesday, August 17th at 7pm at Schuler Books on 28th Street in Grand Rapids. Here’s the link:
Hope to see some of you there, too! If you know of anyone that may be interested, please forward this message.
