    2014 International Barefoot Running Day (IBRD)

    Run/Walk: Come join us to celebrate 2014 International Barefoot Running Day on Sunday, May 4, at 9:30 a.m.! We will have a run/walk of varying distances (3 miles to 5 miles, add two miles if you would like to additionally climb and descend the mountain side, but not required, although loads of fun!). We can hit the trails and/or run on the pavement (asphalt/concrete); all of it is barefoot-friendly! Minimalist runners are just as welcome!

    Lunch: If you don't have to cut out after the run, we will have lunch afterwards at either Base Camp BBQ, Campfire Grill, Marketplace, or Granite Cafe; group will decide.

    Parking: $10, so consider carpooling with others or come alone.

    Driving Directions: http://www.stonemountainpark.com/directions.aspx

    GPS Navigation Systems: 1000 Robert E. Lee Blvd., Stone Mountain, GA 30083. Alternative address: U.S. Highway 78, East, Exit 8, Stone Mountain, GA 30087

    In Park Directions:
    • To Walk Up Trails from East Gate

      Enter the East Gate and follow Jefferson Davis Drive straight. After you cross over Stone Mountain Lake, the road will fork. Follow the road to the right onto Robert E. Lee Blvd. Continue straight past the West Gate Entrance and the parking lot for the Walk-Up Trail will be on the left.
    Contact Info: My email address is BarefootTJ@TheBarefoot Runners.org. I will share a phone number later, when the date nears.

    More Info: We're meeting at Confederate Hall, not Memorial Hall. See the link to the Complete Trails Map. It shows all of the trails we can do, and it shows where the Walk-Up Trail Head is (at the beginning of the yellow line): http://www.thebarefootrunners.org/misc/stonemountainpark-completetrailmap.pdf

    I plan to be there with my sons. We will walk with you all for an out-and-back, no more than 1.5 miles each way. I think it's a mile to the trail head anyway. You are welcome to run ahead. It would be nice if we could all have lunch at one of the in-park restaurants afterwards. We would wait for you all to show back up to where we start out.

    Sigh, bad news guys. I will not be able to attend on Sunday. My family has an important thing to do in Bremen GA. My wife would have missed it but it would have made her extremely sad and upset her mom, so even though I really want to meet you all ad hang out, I have to bow out this time.

    Is there anyone else in Georgia who would like to join us tomorrow for International Barefoot Running Day at Stone Mountain? Please consider it, and if you do, you will find all the info you need at the top of this event thread.

    Hope to see you out there!
