    Hi Johan,

    We have had an event register for 2014 International Barefoot Running Day in the Nederland. I don't know how close you are to Tilburg, The Netherlands, but it would be worth a message to the organizer to see if you two can get this Chapter up and running. Please PM him through the site here: Oerloper Let me know what transpires and if you can get to the IBRD event.

    Welcome! I am from Ede. Are you a 'minimalist' or a barefooter?

    Something went wrong with the whole PM thing... I can't make it to the event anyway, but it seems to be a very nice event! Anyone else who is going?

    Oerloper is also the guy Barefoot Ken Bob mentions in his book. Small world!

    I've heard of Oerloper. I think he is a member too?

    Alright all you Dutch peeps, I have created a new chapter named Nederlands-Netherlands (name might change and might not). Please go to this chapter and Join the chapter as a member. http://thebarefootrunners.org/social-forums/nederlands-netherlands.90/ Johan needs all the support he can get to grow this chapter, so if you know of anyone, or run into anyone who is running barefoot or minimal, please be sure to ask them to join the BRS and this new chapter. Thanks! Johan, I have emailed you.

    both I guess, On asphalt I run in Earthrunner sandals but half of my trainings(and the ocassional marathon) I do barefoot on beaches.
    I do wnt to transition to full barefoot but it's a bit awkward in a city like Rotterdam
