2021 International Barefoot Running Day????

So, as we all know, last year's IBRD was a bust. With reports of Covid varients emerging around the world, this year's IBRD doesn't look very promising.

Instead, let's think of some alternative ideas practicing social distancing and how to implement those ideas. If you have any suggestions, please share below.

We have a winning 2020 IBRD tee shirt design by Dawsy that we were going to use for 2020, but since that event never took place, I plan to use his design for the first IBRD we resume in person.

IBRD takes place on Sunday, May 2, 2021!

Looking for a Volunteer

to
Shut Down BRS Facebook Pages
(EXCEPT for the Main BRS Facebook Page)

I'll be shutting down all of the BRS Facebook Chapter pages soon, except for the main one. These pages are numerous, and they get very little traffic. They tell the world that we are not active, and that's the wrong message to send. It's really one (x many) less thing I would have to worry about if they were gone.

I'd like to be able to contact each of the people who have liked any of the BRS Facebook pages to let them know that they can join the BRS's main site and like the BRS's main Facebook page before I shut them down, and I believe that there's a way to do this by using Mobile Monkey:
