AnnaMcNuff: Barefoot Britain
Running 100 barefoot marathons to encourage young women to reach for the impossible

What’s the plan?
In June 2019, I’ll set off to run the distance of 100 marathons (2,620 miles) through Britain – completely barefoot.

Starting in the Shetland Islands and ending five months later in London, I’ll weave my way along rugged coastlines, through small villages, across moors, along beaches, over farmland and even pitter patter down the odd picturesque A-road too. I’ll be passing through some of the country’s biggest cities, and a fair ole wodge of suburbia as well – in the hope that runners (or wannabe runners) will throw on their trainers and join me for a mile or two.

2019 IBRD Tee Shirts ARE NOW Available!

You can begin purchasing your 2019 IBRD gear. We have tee shirts, micro fabric ones too, phone cases, mugs, buttons, totes, etc. If you want a particular item that is not showing in the store, please let us know, and we will add it for you.

We have international store "locations," so you won't have to ship from the U.S. or across the world from your area, hopefully.

Keep in mind the time needed to create your item and ship it to you to help ensure your item arrives before IBRD!

Here's the...

Salem Paddy Pint 10K
By StJohnTheGambler

Top o' the morning to ye! A fine sunny day to run a 10K, and at the reasonable hour of 10am! Instead of paying $100 for a St. Patrick's Day race in Portland tomorrow, I've opted for a cheaper one, $40 (and that was because I registered last minute) down in Salem today, where the money goes to a charity. I guess I'm less enthused about races in general, especially at the shorter end or 5K and 10K, distances I might conceivably run anyway, but being with a pack does motivate me to push myself, run faster, though would be more fun with a friend or two. Or at least a fellow barefooter. Alas, I have neither.

The route starts in Riverfront Park, and loops around Minto Park, areas I've run before on my own. The 5Kers have a different start and will go directly to Minto, while us 10Kers will first go over the footbridge to West Salem and...

Announcing the 2019 IBRD Artwork Design!

This design was created by 15-year old Eline whose father is a barefooter. We are very proud of you, Eline. Thank you so much for your contribution!

This artwork is the OFFICIAL 2019 IBRD tee shirt design that will be worn all over the world and shown on any posters and postings about this year's IBRD.

Please congratulate and thank Eline!

We will be adding the 2019 design to our Zazzle store very soon, so you all can order tee shirts, and don't forget, we have micro fabric/wicking tee shirts too. We also have international links to keep your shipping costs down. Please know that your purchase helps fund your club. Once the tee shirts have been added to the store, we will let you know and share the link back here.
