Join in the fun for this great international event! On Sunday, 6 May 2011, barefoot runners will hit the roads the world over in a collective display of natural running. These will be fun runs of 1km, 5km, or maybe 10 Km. Proudly sponsored by the Barefoot Runners Society, the event is truly international, with many countries planning to represent. We expect as many as several thousand runners worldwide. We will also be reaching out to other barefoot and running organizations, as well as inviting the press. Our goal: A critical mass event to create awareness for BFR and to show the world just how much fun it can be. Mark your Calendar! Start time: All Day! As organized by the local chapters (see FAQ, below). Locations: Everywhere! As organized by local chapters. (See TheBarefootRunners.org/IBRD -- under construction). Distances: Fun runs of 1km and 5km. Some locations may do other distances as well. Many of the local chapter admins have already offered up their support (Thanks!). We will post the important details to this Forum thread. We will also be running a t-shirt contest for the event and then selling the t-shirts via the BRS website to raise funds for the BRS and bring awareness to IBRD™.
