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...

The North Face Endurance Challenge, WI, 50 Mile
By Trevize1138


I cut this one close. Cutoff time was 13 hours. My friend and I crossed the line with only 25 minutes to spare!

That's all we asked for though: just to finish our first 50 miler. We've both done 50ks before and I'm here to say that back-to-back marathons is definitely next level and we couldn't have done it without running the whole way together as a team.

We were also the only guys in huaraches I saw. I did the first 11 miles unshod and my friend tried a couple miles in the middle holding his sandals. I'd say about 80% of the course was nice, smooth dirt and grass but the super rocky climbs and descents were frequent enough that sandals were a must and after a point of extreme exhaustion the act of slipping them off and on was too much.

Those first 11 miles felt great, too. As did the next 11 miles. Overall we...

Barefoot man seen travelling through Cornwall is running 900-miles to Scotland on 'sustainability

By Cornwall Live

An environmentalist is running a 900-mile route from Land's End to John O'Grouts barefoot, in a 30-day journey he is calling the 'sustainability barefoot adventure'.

Tony Riddle, a 47-year-old dad of three (soon to be four), kicked off his run on Sunday (September 1) from Land's End, the most westerly point of mainland UK and is running to John O'Grouts, the most northerly point.

He is covering 30 miles per day for 30 days and along the way hopes to raise £30,000 for six environmental organisations that he will be meeting along the way - including Cornwall based Surfers Against Sewage.

Tony, who lives in West Hampstead, London with his wife and children,...
