The competition continues…
We’ve been overwhelmed by the response to what’s the best thing about barefoot running question we posted a few days ago. We showed all of the responses to Lee Saxby. and he found it difficult to pick his favourite. There were so many great responses, which got us thinking…how can we take this competition to the next level? We want to showcase all of YOUR positive comments and share them in a fun and interactive way.
This is what we came up with: We make a compilation video featuring YOU answering the original question, what’s the best thing about barefoot running?
In order for this to work – we need YOU!
- Record a video of yourself answering the question,
- Upload your video,
- Send us a link to your video.
How to send the video:
- Email us
- Tweet Us – mention us and use the hashtag #barefootisbest
- Facebook – post the link on our Wall
- Or post it in the comments section below.
There are only three simple rules:
- The video must be under 10 seconds long
- In a standard video format
- Give us permission to use it
So go get creative, get outdoors (if possible) and tell us on video: what’s the best thing about barefoot running?
We’ll collect all of the best video entries and make a compilation video featuring YOU. If we use YOUR video we will give you a free pair of VIVOBAREFOOT Shoes – it’s that easy to be a winner!
The closing date for this competition is the21st May 2012.
In the original competition we said we would pick a winner, so we will still honour that promise…and the winner is: Anne Vasey with this answer:
“Feeling like a kid again, skipping over tree roots, squidging through mud and darting nimbly past plodding pedestrians, making them jump as your steps are so soft and soundless.”
