    Quite funny: I met the mayor of Wetter, who had participated in the run himself, in the changing room. He asked me how bare feet perform on wet roads, and I had to tell him that they may even have some disadvantages compared to shoes under such conditions. Later when he conducted the victory ceremony (it was still raining heavily), he said to the audience: "You had to be very careful in this run not to slip and fall, but Martin told me that the situation was not better with bare feet". :)

    I always enjoyed my barefoot rain runs. I never found the surfaces to be too slippery, and I've run in some serious storms too. Oh, how I miss running barefoot in the rain. sigh.

    Well, on the cobblestone parts, it was extremely slippery.

    And another event.

    3. Wohra-Auenlauf (Run through the meadows at River Wohra), Rauschenberg, 23 August 2014:

    A Marburg barefoot runner was the fastest woman in the 5 k run (21:49), and the fastest male barefoot runner completed the 10 k in 38:30.

    ... and finishing the 5 k in 22:38

    Seems like the first weekly barefoot running club in Germany (established April 2014) pays off :)

    All the best,
    Martin

    I especially enjoyed the ones through the middle of the town.

    It always strikes me as ironic to see barefoot runners wearing running bibs displaying shoe manufacturing race sponsors.
