    I'm a new member of the BRS, though I've been a natural soled "hobbit" most of my life. When I'm not barefoot, I love wearing moccasins and medieval thin soled shoes.

    Are any of you SCAdians?
    Have any of you tried "Viking" turn shoes?
    I am also interested in some thin soled "Safety Toed" work shoe recommendations, if anyone has them.

    JUNE 30TH, 2018.
    I am signed up to be the 10th member of a company team for an obstacle course run in Pueblo, called the Big Dog Brag, I gather its one of those "tough mudder" competitions that will be at the USC Pueblo outdoor course.
    I don't think I've done one of these in my adult life while completely barefoot. I'm wondering about gnarly wooden walls, other runners in cleats, rope burn, and anything else that might give me a foot injury. Any advice?

    Hope to hear back from someone "local" to the Front Range and/or Southern Colorado.

    Have fun this year!

    I've run the Camp Pendleton Mud Run in Southern California.

    Biggest problem I had with getting over the wooden walls, was getting over the walls. In one case I had to run up one of the angled supports to get close enough to grab the top of the wall and pull myself over.

    The important thing to avoid splinters, etc. while barefoot is not to skid your feet

    I had no problem with people wearing cleats in more than 400 races run barefoot, probably because someone would need to actually be attempting to trip you in order to step on your feet. Otherwise, most people's feet and shoes are all facing forward on the course.
