    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.

    We're also running a T-Shirt Contest, and T-Shirts for the event will be for sale via the BRS website.

    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.

    Please consider hosting an event in your area.

    If you have any questions feel free to PM me or write to ibrd@barefootrunners.org. Thanks in advance for your support.

    Cheers,

    Paleo

    I think we can set up some

    I think we can set up some kind of IBRD local event here on the island. Between FreeYourToes and myself we can come up with something somewhere. It seems like we could get a decent turn out with all the VFFs I saw at the Great Aloha Run. I wonder how we would get the word out? Print outs at running shops, Boca, IT&B, Running Room and the like are a good place to start I guess.

    What do you mean the link to

    What do you mean the link to the event forum isn't working yet, Smelph? We don't have an event forum, although that's a great suggestion! We do have an IBRD tab/link at the top that has all the info you need.

    FYT, Godspeed to you. And thank you for your service.

    Well the one in paleo's post

    Well the one in paleo's post is the one that doesn't seem to be working. I hadn't noticed the button at the top until you mentioned it, but that one worked just fine.

    Paleo, what do you think about having a forum created just for the IBRD?
