From Erie’s barefoot runner, Tom Madura:
Just over a week to go ’til International Barefoot Running Day!
I hope you’re all out there ramping up your barefoot mileage!
I don’t put much faith in long-range weather forecasts, but
Accuweather says sunny and 74 for Sunday May 6th! Now that’s some good
barefoot running weather!
If you missed the details earlier:
•WHEN: May 6, 2012 9:00 AM
•WHERE: Presque Isle; Stull Nature Center (near Beach 1)
•HOW FAR: Fun runs of 1-mile and 5km
◦To bring awareness to barefoot and minimalist running
◦To show support for this sport we love
◦To have loads of fun in a worldwide moment of barefoot solidarity
Runners in minimalist footwear (Vibram Five-Fingers, etc) are
welcome, as well as those in normal running shoes willing to at least TRY SOME
AMOUNT of barefoot running.
This is strictly a non-competitive, non-timed event. I will provide water and snacks afterwards.
The main idea is to have fun!
