    2021 International Barefoot Running Day

    This is what we're talking about in another thread, if you'd like to comment as well (here or there): https://www.thebarefootrunners.org/threads/barefootcrew5k.22743/

    Anything you all want to do for IBRD is fine.

    I've asked before and received no solid ideas (thanks to the 2 or 3 who commented) and no volunteers to organize it, so we're probably just going to have a "virtual" IBRD for this year like we did last year. I understand it's still difficult in some places around the world due to lock downs and virus variants popping up (we're told) to actually pull off get-togethers too.

    I wanted to use this guy as our virtual mascot for 2021 on the tee shirt, but we need someone to create the artwork for the tee shirts (running out of time) to go with it. (The artwork basically has the name of the event, the date, and maybe the web address on it.)

    We'll have to see how future years go, but with the lack of interest in the tee shirt contest, a source of revenue to keep the BRS going, and the lack of interest in events/planning, I'm not sure there will be an official organized event channeled through one source (like the BRS) for the future either. It may just come down to the First Sunday in May is designated as International Barefoot Running Day and that's it.

    I’m happy to do battle with the zazzle site again if we can get some artwork....
    Anyone got that skill?....:)

    Someone has organized the past events in Stockholm. I'll be there if there is such this year.

    Otherwise as it's quite uncertain if we can gather, it would be kind of cool if we did a follow the sun race. Say everybody on different parts of the earth run at 10am local for 1 hour, such as we have a relay barefoot running day :)

    I just posted a proposed May 2 run at 4:00 pm for New York City (Manhattan), but haven't publicized it yet. I posted it on the BarefootNYC Meetup site, since I'm still an organizer for that group: https://www.meetup.com/BarefootNYC/

    Great! If we can get our act together, I'll get your details and add them to the IBRD info.

    Did you get T-shirts made (or prepared to be made)? I don't know that I'd be interested in a T-shirt contest, but I'd be willing to buy one or two.

    No tee shirts this year. It's too late to add them to the store and have them delivered in time.
