    Washington, DC - Naked Foot 5K - IBRD - May 6, 2012

    The Event: This isn't just your typical 5K. We have partnered with the national charity Soles4Souls and local charity Teens Run D.C. and encourage runners to bring a pair of shoes to donate and challenge them to run barefoot (although completely optional)! We will be hosting a mini healthy living expo and clinics before the event on how to "run like you are barefoot" with well known runners and authors.

    The Course: This is no boring road race. We do not reveal the course until race day but be prepared for a cross country-like adventurous course!

    The Extras: We have lots of FREE fun events set up for the entire family including a FREE kids 1K race, "foot painting", foot massages, live music, a raffle for a chance to win amazing prizes, a shoe kicking contest, and more!

    Bare Life mini-expo: A festival for everything that represents an active, healthy and natural lifestyle. - Try on, demo, and discounts on purchasing Minimalist footwear - Sample organic and/or natural foods and beverages - Green and eco-friendly products, businesses, and services - Holistic medical products, services, and businesses - Accessories, apparel and gear for an active lifestyle - Demos and booths by alternative fitness and lifestyle practices: Paleo, cross-fit, yoga, ChiRunning/walking, parqour, mov-nat, Flow Running, and more. - Clinics by athletes, authors, and professionals on minimalist/natural running, nutrition, and more! - Post event festival with kids activities, foot massages, games, and live music.
