    It was a success! I organized this through the Oakland Barefoot Running meetup group and only one member RSVP'd so I was expecting 3 people at the most. When I got there at 11:30 I was surprised to see that two other guys showed up: Jay and Matt, both of whom apparently discovered it through an announcement on the Xero shoes mailing list! This was mostly a hike, but we did a little bit of running over about 4 miles, including a few steep climbs and descents. The surfaces were very barefoot friendly for all of us.
