    Organisers are: Colin McPhail & Donnie Campbell

    This year's annual get-together for anyone interested in treating their running as natural.

    The barefooted element may not be for everyone, so this event is laid on to bring together those with lightweight footwear, sandals, Vibram Fivefingers and basically everyone who is interested in helping others see the future of running.

    If you run and want to remain a runner for many years then this will be a very informative get-together.

    The format will be as follows:

    09.00 Trade stalls set up and prepared
    10.00 Registration opens
    11.00 Barefoot Run Course safety briefing
    11.30 The Scottish Barefoot Run
    12.30 Lunch at the Marquee
    14.00 Conference opens
    15.30 Coffee
    16.30 Prepare to close
    17.00 Conference closes
    18.00 Pre dinner drinks at the Golf Tavern
    19.00 Indian Street Food at Tuk Tuk Indian Restaurant (£15-20 / head payable at the restaurant, BYOB)

    Here is a link to last year's event: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SbyS1DDg2fQ

    This year's run follows the exact route of previous ones and has been voted one of the best routes in the world. A map will be posted later showing the exact route.

    Lunch is laid on by The SBFR&C

    The Conference will be held at the Eric Liddell Centre or in the Marquee depending on weather.

    Speakers this year are Jae Gruenke of New York's "Balanced Runner". Jae has a font of knowledge and has been paramount in many movies all to do with running naturally. Her workshops are world- renowned for achieving some of the highest results within this simple but complex field. (Currently working on another big name.)

    The final session of the conference will be an open forum with a panel of specialists from both the teaching and commercial trade, this always creates a good debate so get your questions thought out.

    The Golf is very convenient for Tuk Tuk and they are only 5 mins apart. Tuk Tuk will be informed of our onslaught and hopefully will provide the quality of food and service that we have received in the past. Tuk Tuk is an Indian Street food tapas style menu and is NOT licenced. There is an excellent wine shop on route called The Drinkmonger and their selection is impeccable
