    I am looking at organising a barefoot run for all the members of our chapter on BRS. Free to enter, no prizes, just for the hell of it.

    Where about in the country are you?

    Where would you like to see a run take place?



    Thanks

    Martyn

    Hey Martyn, I'm Paolo from south London... what about Richmond park. That's a fantastic place for a run!

    Dundee in Scotland :)

    Probs not the best place for a BF run though (esp. since most of you seem to be based down in England)...

    Hiking trails is usually pretty good (e.g. some stretches of the Fife Coastal Path here).

    I'm in Southampton and can vouch that the New Forest is gorgeous!

    I live in the New Forest and can confirm that it is a fantastic place to run.

    I'm another north of the Border (West Lothian); as Pes Planus said, there probably isn't much point organising anything here, though the hills are indeed great. I'd certainly consider coming south though!

    West Hampshire, on the edge of the New Forest. There are so many of us here you would have thought that we would be for ever tripping over each other!
    See you in Brighton for the 5K if not before.

    Mark. (In Abu Dhabi this week and hoping to run on the F1 race track on Tuesday!)

    I'm in Chesham in Buckinghamshire. I travelled to NY for work last year and met up with a BRS runner there: it would be good to make a shorter journey to meet like-minded people here!

    Oh, and if you guys could please add yourselves to the Member Map on the site. It helps the chapter presidents to coordinate group runs by knowing where their members are located.

    There do seem to be a lot of us down here. Any tips for good places around the new forest to run barefoot?
