As you most likely have gathered, the Barefoot Runners Society has turned over the coordination of International Barefoot Running DayTM to the world, that is anyone or any group who wants to host an IBRD event is welcome to do so and may post their event info here on this site in the IBRD forum, the country / state forum on this site where the event is to be held, the BRS’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/barefootrunnerssociety), and anywhere else they feel would help them to get the word out, such as other Facebook groups and pages, barefoot and minimalist running groups' websites, running clubs' websites, newspapers, etc.
Likewise, please be sure to share your events' pictures and reports back here in the BRS's IBRD forum....

Do your feet feel better at the end of the day than they did at the beginning?
If not, it's because your shoes aren't letting your feet do what's NATURAL.
