    TJ, this search will not be just NCAA D1. We will take NCAA D2 & D3, as well as NAIA and junior college runners as well. Sound good?

    Update: I have learned via Instagram that Coastal Carolina's Annie Bothma is sitting out this season upon recommendations from a doctor due to a recurring back injury stemming from a auto accident in 2015 while at Boise State. She is using a medical redshirt for this season & has 2 years of eligibility left.

    No luck so far this weekend:

    Coastal Carolina sat out Lisha van Onselen & Aynslee van Graan,among others, at the Gamecock Invitational in South Carolina.

    California Baptist's Leanda du Bruyn finished 6th at their home invite race, but because of tough footing due to a lack of grass at their home course she had to wear shoes instead of going barefooted.

    If anyone else knows of anyone who is running barefoot in a race, please add your replies to this thread.

    Lots of Google searching through team websites is where the knowledge comes from, TJ. Can't do this project without Google searching! Teams do post photo galleries as well from time to time after meets. Have to use all possible resources!!

    Update on previous post: Coastal Carolina has cancelled their meet as part of a school-wide cancellation of all athletics due to Hurricane Irma.

    Pretty cool stuff BB, I had no idea there would be many at all in college competing barefoot. I wish I had run in college (and barefoot of course)!

    Tristan, Coastal Carolina's program also had 2 other barefoot runners who have graduated(Letitia Saayman & Kyla Van Graan). They are getting a lot of South Africans to come to their program.
