TOES ON ROADS WINNERS - FEBRUARY 2015
It is my pleasure to announce the winners and top-scoring nations of this year's first Toes on Roads Competition.
First, the total distance, 4172 km, of which 2235 km (54%) were run barefoot, is a great performance - especially given the fact that February is usually not regarded a typical barefoot running month in most of the countries participating!
The individual champions are:
- DNEchris from New York, representing the USA, in the category „total distance“ (356.1 km)
- Christian Lemburg from Aachen, representing Germany, in the category „barefoot distance“ (219.5 km)

UK Chapter Member takes First Place at parkrun
By Paul Beales
Congratulations to UK Chapter member Mike Greenwood, on taking first place at the Bournemouth parkrun last Saturday in a time of 17 minutes 31 seconds!
Mike was already at the top of the BRS UK parkrun table, and has now moved even further into the lead.
Top job Mike!
Mike was joined at the Bournemouth parkrun by fellow members Amit & Mark, who finished in very respectable times of 21:40 and 26:56 respectively.
