    New York-based ultrarunner Kenneth Posner completed a 22-day trek along California’s 210-mile (337K) John Muir Trail (JMT) on Saturday. While Posner didn’t run the route, he is an avid trail runner and ultrarunner, and he almost exclusively runs barefoot. He didn’t take to the JMT to break any official records (the various fastest known time records for the JMT hover around two to four days), but rather for a personal challenge: to hike the entire trail without shoes.

    FROM BRS MEMBER T L GAVIN:

    Hello fellow barefoot hikers!

    I've been following barefoot adventurer Ken Posner's blog "The Long Brown Path" for a while, and was happy to discover that last month he succeeded on his third try (in three years) to barefoot backpack the 211-mile John Muir Trail through California's Sierra Nevada, complete with a shoe-less summitting of Mt. Whitney, the highest mountain in the Lower 48 states of the U.S.

    I sent him some questions; he sent some answers; enjoy!
