'I ran the length of the British mainland barefoot’
By BBC Radio

A runner from London who believes trainers are bad for your feet, decided to prove it by running the length of the British mainland without wearing any shoes.

Tony Riddle told 5 Live’s Anna Foster he ran barefoot from Land's End to John O'Groats to “show what we’re capable of”.

He argues that trainers interfere with how the body is designed to move and said, “the more and more you expose your feet, we just adapt”.

Originally from BBC Radio 5 Live Drive with Anna Foster and Tony Livesey.

Release date:
15 October 2019

Marathon de Camargue 2019
By Lambda

Ce samedi avait lieu, dans le cadre du Grand Raid de Camargue, le Marathon de Camargue, dont on a pris le départ avec @GT179.
Comptes rendus et photos à venir, un peu plus tard dans la semaine en ce qui me concerne.

On y a rencontré Nathalie, qui court pieds nus et en sandales, et Tristan, qui court en minimalistes (Altra), que l'on croisera peut-être sur ce forum, et/ou à Onnion dans deux semaines.

En attendant, voilà le parcours enregistré par mon GPS.

Laguna Hills Memorial Day10K

By Pablo Miguel

It goes without saying, better late than never….
Here’s my race report (really late race report!!!) for the Laguna Hills Memorial Day Half Marathon 10K & 5K race on May 27, 2019.

After a little more than a year of taking on barefoot running, I decided it was time to test myself by entering a race. Since I was already running 5 miles unshod on concrete every Saturday during the prior 2 months, I thought I was ready for a 10K race.

Before registering to the event, I made an inquiry in the California/L.A. chapter and Barefoot Ken Bob was kind enough to reply and gave some advice:

I also had the opportunity to meet Barefoot Ken Bob a couple of days...
