“Changing the running world, one odd look at a time” – BRS
VIVOBAREFOOT is proud to announce that we are officially supporting IBRD. To mark the event, the Barefoot Runners Society has coordinated local running events all over the world. To be part of the great day and for more details in your area, check the Barefoot Runners Society website.
IBRD is a grassroots movement designed to promote barefoot running as a healthy and viable way to run, which we (VIVOBAREFOOT) are all for. Most of the events are 1k or 5k Fun Runs to encourage everyone to be involved. Be sure to check back in with us after your events on Facebook and Twitter to tell us your stories and share your pictures! You’ll be celebrating the day among thousands of other barefoot runners from around the world.
Whether you’re new to barefoot running or a seasoned veteran, we encourage you to have a look at our FREE eBook; Proprioception: Making Sense Of Barefoot Running. Written by our barefoot running expert, Lee Saxby, it will take you from the basic barefoot movement milestones, all the way to correct form while running as nature intended – barefoot.
