    The Event: This isn't just your typical 5K. We have partnered with the national charity Soles4Souls 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.​
