    Just a quick FYI, if anyone is interested, the shiprock marathon is barefoot friendly. It is a USATF Boston qualifier also. It is scheduled for Saturday May 4th 2014. More info at shiprock marathon.com

    That happens to be the same day as International Barefoot Running Day. Perhaps you all could make it an IBRD event? Hoping.

    In what way is it barefoot friendly? Just wondering if there's something specific or different about it than any other given race ...

    Looks like a beautiful place to run. I've been up that way before but never on foot.

    The road is quite smooth for most of the run. The staff has been very supportive of barefoot runners, They are a great group of people.

    And you will be running near one of the most famous rocks in the southwest.
