BRS New York Ira Rohde, IraR rockyroadabubark@gmail.com New York New York, Manhattan In front of the entrance to 2 West 70th Street, New York, NY BarefootNYC, a.k.a. Barefoot Runners NYC; https://www.meetup.com/BarefootNYC/events/260019880/ 12:30 p.m. 6 miles/10 Km Please register (and cancel) up via the Meetup Group, which I've decided to re-activate. We will meet outside of my place of worship, 2 West 70th, St., on the border of Central Park, entering the park, most likely, at the West 69th St. and Central Park West Entrance, although Central Park itself can get crowded with races and tourists and we might have to run by the Riverside. I've scheduled some training runs in advance, which can be signed up for on the Meetup. Hopefully I will be scheduling some runs elsewhere in New York City, as well.

BRS United Kingdom Bjorn Foten, Bjorn Foten bjorn.foten.djevel@gmail.com United Kingdom Everywhere Wherever you are N/A 4th and 5th of May 1673km We’ve been trying to figure out how to mark International Barefoot Running Day (5th May) in a way which includes everyone, no matter where in Great Britain you are located. A running meet might be a great social occasion for those who can get there, but practically speaking, it’s only ever going to be accessible to a fraction of our membership, and that isn’t what we want at all! Wherever you are in Scotland, Wales, or England, we want you to be able to join in with our celebration of the sport and pleasure of barefoot running. So, we have come up with an IBRD challenge that everyone can participate in, irrespective of geography and whether you are a seasoned ultra-runner or someone taking their first barefoot steps… Collectively, we are going to run the length and breadth of the land! From the most Southerly point of the British Mainland (Lizard Point in Cornwall) to the most Northerly (Dunnet Head, Caithness), passing through Holyhead in Anglesey on the way, is a distance of 975km. From the most Easterly (Lowestoft Ness, Suffolk) to the most Westerly (Corrachadh Mor, Highland) is 698km. Adding the two together we arrive at 1,673km, or 1046 miles and so that is our goal: to collectively log at least that many barefoot miles over the course of the weekend of the 4th and 5th of May. Every barefoot run (or walk) you take will count and no distance is too great or too small – every step brings us closer to our goal. You can log your distance on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #ibrduk, or by replying to this post. Include an image and some words if you can and we’ll build up a picture of our collective achievement, allowing us all to truly share the experience. Anyone can take part – members and non-members – as long as they are willing to lose the shoes and celebrate barefoot running! So let’s get out there and run the length and breadth of our land this IBRD... Happy running!
