The Event: This isn't just your typical 5K. We have partnered with the charity Soles4Souls and encourage runners to bring a pair of shoes to donate and challenge them to run barefoot (although completely optional)! Also included in entry is a really awesome high-tech tee, a raffle for a chance to win amazing prizes, and on-going giveaways by our sponsors on our Facebook Page. Kids under 12 can run in the 5k free.
The Course: This is no boring road race. We do not reveal the course until race day but be prepared for a cross country-like adventurous course!
The Extras: We have lots of FREE fun events set up for the entire family including a free kids 1k race , "foot painting", foot massages, live music, a raffle for a chance to win amazing prizes, a shoe kicking contest and more! We will be hosting a mini healthy living expo and clinics before the event on how to "run like you are barefoot" with well known runners and authors.
