    2017-2018 open for Southern Hemisphere

    By Hikerdana

    For all those living south of the equator now is your time to enter the winter barefoot challenge.

    8th Annual Winter Challenge

    Everyone is welcome to participate, whether you run or walk at least 1/3 of a mile in one outing.

    Challenge yourself and run/walk in the cold or even the snow.

    Southern Hemisphere the challenge runs from April 1 2017 to Sept 31, 2017
    Northern Hemisphere the challenge runs from Oct 1 2016 to March 31 2017

    1. All runs/walks must be BAREFOOT
    2. Temperature with windchill must be less than or equal to 50°F (10°C)
    3. Any run/walk of 1/3 mile (0.5 km) or over can be counted
    4. Add your total distance and runs in the appropriate temperature range on the following spreadsheet:

    (Qualifying runs already done can be added to the spreadsheet.)

    Select 'Units' (km or mi.) Total distances will be converted to MILES. You will need to convert the temperatures manually to °F. NEW I have added in the top right header a temperature calculator that will convert from ºF to ºC for those who do not use ºF (for the whole world but the USA)

    Wind Chill Calculator

    Everyone who enters will receive a Winter Challenge medal. A winners medal will also be awarded for the one who covers the most miles on foot on each continent and a World Champion for most miles overall. We also award a Frosty Foot medal for the one who runs/walks in the lowest temperature. Below is a sample of this years participate medals:

    If you have any suggestions or questions, please let me (Hikerdana) know.

    @Barefoot TJ
    What about Northern Hemisphere? Is the challenge already started?
    We had some cold mornings in September here (5-10°C). I ran something like 22.5 km barefoot in such conditions last month.
