Save the date – IBRD – May 4

I recently received this note from Tom Madura, Erie’s original barefoot runner (Tom was doing it wayyyy before it became trendy!).

It’s that time again!
The Barefoot Runners Society is once again promoting International Barefoot Running Day on May 4th, 2014!
Their website describes it this way:

The Barefoot Runners Society (BRS) is proud to announce the 4th annual International Barefoot Running Day™ (IBRD™) on Sunday May 4, 2014.

After our previous successes, we hope to increase our turnout again this year. IBRD is a grassroots, inclusive effort to promote barefoot running as a healthy and viable way to run. It’s also about having fun and delighting in the idea of running barefoot with thousands of people worldwide on the same day.

  • WHEN: Sunday, May 4, 2014
  • WHERE: Everywhere, Worldwide
  • HOW FAR: Fun runs of 1km and 5km; some locations may have other distances as well
  • WHY:
    • To bring awareness to barefoot and minimalist running
    • To show support for this sport we love
    • To have loads of fun in an worldwide moment of barefoot solidarity
Last year five of us from Erie participated, and I’d like that to grow this year!
We’ll meet near the new ERC Pavilion at Beach One at 9:00 AM on May 4th, for a very informal  gathering and fun run.
We’ll plan for a 5K run, but you can do more or less as you like.
All are welcome – PLEASE come out and give it a try – Even if you’ve never run barefoot and are just curious about it. Come and run in your running shoes, min shoes, Vibrams, or totally barefoot!
I hope you’ll join me on the 4th!

    I saw at least one pair of Five-Fingers in your Team Adrenaline group photo! Don’t be shy! (Yeah, right.) :D
