    I live in Castleton and have just started running barefoot. Still building up my feet but I am very interested in finding someone to run with and share accountability, etc. I have been running 3-5 times a week depending on how sore I get. About 3-5k per run. I am also wondering if there are any training opportunities around here where one can learn better form. Any information is appreciated.
    Thanks,
    John

    Hello John,
    I came from not too far from your way quite a few years ago. Always like the Castleton and the surrounding peak district areas. In fact a few years ago while I was there I walked over Mam Tor barefoot (in contrast to everyone in heavy hiking boots) and did get a few people asking if it hurt. There would be some challenging trails around your neck of the woods.

    Neil
