    Greetings,

    As you may have read, the BRS is launching the inaugural International Barefoot Running Day (IBRD) on 1 May 2011. This grassroots event strives to promote barefoot/minimalist running. But, it is mostly about having some fun, knowing that the world over, all on the same day, thousands of barefoot/minimalist runners like you have taken part in this event.

    The Chapter Presidents have largely committed to setting up gatherings in their localities, but we need as many events as possible to make this a truly worldwide success.

    Setting up a meeting in your area requires just 2 steps.
    [*]To decide "I am going to run at XX o'clock on 1 May starting at Location XYZ. Anyone who wants can join me."[*]To post this information at http://barefootrunners.org/ibrd (Click on IBRD Event Form).
    As you will see at the Event Form FAQ, you may also wish to help further by sending a press release (prepared by us) to your local media or running clubs.

    At the moment, our priority to get as many events as possible listed, asap, so that we can create global momentum around what is going to be a great event.

    If you have any questions feel free to PM me or write to ibrd@barefootrunners.org.

    Thanks in advance for your support.

    Cheers,

    Paleo

    If no one else is up for Gold Coast, I'm happy to pull it together.

    There's a couple local races that day. One it to benefit the Democratic party, sorry but I just can't do that. The other is to benefit a camp for underprivileged kids which is run by the State Police. It's a longer drive but that's something I can contribute to and still sleep at night.

    Since as of now I'm the only DE member, I'll be on my own I guess...

    We are most likely going to be importing the members back into your groups shortly.

    None of them were active anyway. They never replied to any messages or e-mails. I never met any of them.
