    The fifth annual Run for the Water 10-miler and 5K races are produced by and benefits the Gazelle Foundation, which helps to provide citizens of Burundi access to clean water through the implementation of water systems.

    For the first time, the races will also include a barefoot/minimalist runners division. At last count, we already have seven barefoot runners registered in both races, and another has volunteered at a water stop. Barefoot runners will check in at a special table to receive their timing chips just before the race.

    The 10-miler begins at 7am, with the 5K starting at 7:15am. The start and finish line is on the First Street Bridge downtown, near Auditorium Shores. For those looking to run their first barefoot 5K race, the out-and-back course on Cesar Chavez Street is very 'barefoot friendly.'

    We'll gather at 6:30am at the barefoot runners check-in table for some socializin' and a group picture.
