    Any of you guys anticipating doing your local parkrun on 9th August this year?

    In support of Essex parkrunner BarefootLeah, who has pledged to do her first ever barefoot parkrun on this day, we have designated 9th August 2014 as International #barefootparkrun Day.

    We are encouraging all BRS members to leave their VFFs, Sockwas, Xero Sandals or whatever minimalist shoes they might run in to leave them at home on this day, and join other barefoot parkrunners at their local parkrun.

    Let's see how many reports of barefoot runners we can get in parkrun reports all over the UK and the rest of the world for this day! (I know that plans are already in place for barefoot runners to run at at least one or two parkruns in Poland on this day.)

    Let me know if any of you will be doing a barefoot parkrun and I will add it to the calendar!

    Cheers,

    Paul

    Ok, looks like there's 6 of us, heading up to run the Portrush parkrun. It's all beach and apparently there are 4 people there that run barefoot. Maybe a chance for some recruitment. :)
