Traversée de la baie du Mt St Michel
By Sly

Salut tout le monde,

hier Gwendal (de Rennes, du groupe facebook A la découverte de la foulée naturelle) a organisé la traversée de la baie en courant,
on était une trentaine, de tous âges, avec un guide local.

17 km sur des sables variés et faciles, ce qui rend l'expérience accessible aux novices (les mollets vont quand même chauffer un peu j'imagine).

Météo magique !

Hi everyone,

yesterday Gwendal (from Rennes, from the facebook group Discovering the natural stride) organized the crossing of the bay by running,
there were about 30 of us, of all ages, with a local guide.

17 km on varied and easy sands, which makes the experience accessible to novices (the calves will still heat up a bit I imagine).

Magic weather!...

Principal 5K

By CBC.ca

After 12 days of hiking the East Coast Trail from Cape St. Francis to Cappahayden, Donovan Byrd can finally put his feet up.

The 24-year-old began his journey down the eastern coast of Newfoundland's Avalon Peninsula in August in an effort to raise money for mental health initiatives in the province.

But Byrd's trek came with a twist — walking over 260 kilometres barefoot.

"It feels pretty unbelievable that I've even gotten that far," Byrd told CBC News on Saturday.

"Two-hundred-sixty kilometres, it's rough with bare feet on asphalt, but when you're on the trail it's even harder. So It's just unbelievable that I've done it."

Byrd said part of the inspiration to walk barefoot came from a hike in Quebec earlier this summer, when he forgot to bring his hiking boots and decided to hike...

Barefoot Dutchman's World Record Walk Arrives In Nambucca Valley
By News Of The Area

T’s been a simple matter of putting one foot in front of the other.

It’s just that Dutchman Anton Nootenboom has been putting one bare foot in front of the next all the way from Cairns.

He left Cairns on foot in May, and in the next few days he will reach the Nambucca Valley, on his way to Sydney in a world record barefoot trek.

Anton has already beaten the world record for a barefoot walk when he passed through the Gold Coast but the full trip from Cairns to Sydney will set a record that will be very hard to beat for anyone brave enough to follow in his footsteps.

With feet worn down by concrete like sandpaper and bruised by stones, this epic journey is no race, rather a slow and steady effort that sees Anton walking with no set stops other than the final destination, his adopted hometown of Sydney, 2,600 km’s from...
