We will meet before the race to join up for those who want to run together. Just look for the runners without shoes! This is the same course that they had last year, so I know it is "barefootable", but depending on your experience, you may want to carry a pair of VFFs or something. There are other events in this series including a 1 mile fun run and a 1/2 marathon. Check out the link provided for more info. The 1/2 marathon starts at 0730, but the fun run doesn't start until 0945, but it would be great if everyone could still meet before the races and hopefully hang out some afterward. BTW, I am only organizing this event, and I will not be able to attend due to relocating out of state. I wish I could be there, and I hope everyone has a GREAT IBRD 2015!|
