    Facebook event:

    With so many people around us suffering financial problems, we decided to introduce special charity action. Every participant is invited to bring a pair or two of his old shoes for donation. We will bring all the shoes to the local charity warehouses. If you can come to our run, you still can leave your used shoes in ŠC Maratonc store (same building as olympic pool, Partizanska 37) week before and after the run. Thanks in advance!
    After the run we'll have a prize draw and afternoon party.

    Everyone is Welcome!

    It actually could be worse - just 3 days before almost 10 inches of new snow fell and last drops was gone on Sunday morning. Cloudy, windy, wet and rainy was this year Slovenian Barefoot Run - IBRD 2016.

    But no matter what you throw in front of feet of this crazy bunch - out of almost 180 registered more than half shoved up, even two from Hungary. 97 crazy monkeys (from 2 to 86 yo) to be precise and two dogs, and several umbrellas if that counts.We had a blast anyway as we always do, with some MovNat basics thrown in, some wild Guns'n'Roses music to fire things up and a beer or two afterwards.

    Slovenian barefoot community is strong, healthy and with unrelentless. We looking forward to a warm and bright future. See ya soon!
