By Kashmir Reader

Anantnag: A barefoot ultra-marathon runner from Kerala will “run for health” on March 27 from Hazratbal shrine in Srinagar to north Kashmir’s famous tourist destination Gulmarg.

Will International Barefoot Running Day (IBRD)
Take Place This Year?

That's a good question. With differing covid regulations in limbo around the World, I would encourage everyone who can host an IBRD event in their area to do so. If your local or country's government does not approve of it, then please do not. Of course, it's your call.

Going forward for IBRD 2022 and into the future, the BRS will no longer be the main coordinator for Worldwide IBRD events. A new group has stepped forward to take on this responsibility and are currently determining if they will begin this year or next year. I have not heard back just yet, but as soon as I do, I will post here to let you all know.

Of course, we will keep the IBRD forum going, so if anyone wants to share their reports and pictures of their IBRD events, please do.

2022 Barefoot Autism Challenge
Takes place the whole month of April!

Hey guys!

The Barefoot Autism Challenge is kind of going to coincide with a challenge Special Olympics is having me do to prepare myself for the USA Games in Orlando. The challenge is one million steps for 20 weeks, January 10 through May 29. And of course since it goes through April as well, I'm having the theme for the 2022 Barefoot Autism Challenge be all about fitness.

The first short week is Yoga, second is Foot Strengthening, third is Jumping, fourth is Martial Arts and Wellness, and the fifth week is Experience Nature. So, get out there and take advantage of this opportunity to represent and support the BAC, then report back here and, most importantly, on our Facebook page at Share pictures if you got 'em!

Have fun!
