International Barefoot Running Day

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....

Cliff notes: Best race of my life. 19:32:59. Almost nothing went wrong, almost everything went right.

Ultrarunning, in general, is a pretty selfish activity.

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.

Your feet are made to bend, flex, move and FEEL the world. One-quarter of the bones and joints in your ENTIRE body are in your feet and ankles; you have more nerve endings in your soles than anywhere but your finger tips and lips.

Comfort and performance come from using your feet naturally.

That's what Xero Shoes let you do.

- Natural Fit -- wide toe boxes let your toes spread and relax. A non-elevated (zero-drop) heel for proper posture.
