    [​IMG]Barefoot Fun RunRace DetailsYou don't have to be barefoot.
    Run or walk in anything you want from nothing to clogs. Help us raise money for

    MD Anderson.

    Every registered participant has a chance to win one of ten pairs of Vibram Fivefingers. Drawing will be held on race day. See the shoes here.

    This is the first organized barefoot run to be held in central Florida. Please be sure to add raceinfo@barefootfunrun.com to your address book to ensure you receive race updates.

    100% of all proceeds from the race will be donated to MD Anderson Cancer Center, Orlando. This is a great race for a fantastic cause!

    Race Date: November 13, 2010

    Registration fee: $25 per participant. Register four participants at once and save $15.

    Event venue:
    Sanlando Park
    401 West Highland Street
    Altamonte Springs, FL 32714

    Sanlando park is a great venue because it allows us to experience running on multiple surfaces: seminole trail, dirt/grass and packed shell/sand. This provides an opportunity for barefoot runners to learn how to adjust to various terrain.

    Distance: 5K & 3K
    5K for more serious runners and 3K for kids, families and walkers. This is intended to be a fun race for families and individuals of all ages and running abilities. Everyone is welcome.

    I'm definitely interested since I'll be in Orlando that weekend but the links don't seem to be working right. Can't register and can't get to the run site.
