    What distance are you looking at?
    I ran the Run the Bridge 10k over the Ben Franklin bridge (http://www.runthebridge.org/), It's in November
    last June in Moorestown NJ I ran the Scott Coffee 8k (5 miles).
    Both were very barefoot friendly on good quality asphalt.

    I plan on running the 8k in Moorestown unshod. It will be bitter sweet since last year i couldnt run at the time from a nagging ankle injury due to my nikes. Now i survived my training and am running in the Ocean Drive Marathon in Cape May this weekend in VFF with a third of my training totally barefoot.

    The 8k is a really fast course. Last year there was at least one other barefoot runner.
    I don't think I will run it this year but may come to the finish to cheer/meet you. I don't know a lot of barefoot runners in the area.

    Good luck for the marathon this weekend.
