The Barefoot Running Club was established to share the fun, freedom, and health benefits of running barefoot.

Some people just like being barefoot, some believe in the closer connection to nature and the outdoors, some receive health benefits from running barefoot. Whatever your reason, the benefits are multifold. Barefoot running activates many more small muscle groups than running with shoes. It allows us to run as our hunter-gatherer ancestors did - the natural way our body was intended to run. It promotes a more natural form, giving us greater feedback with the ground, and by keeping us lower to the ground, prevents new injuries. Barefoot running naturally promotes better, more efficient running posture. There's something to be said about feeling the earth beneath one's feet - feeling connected and grounded with nature. Suddenly, you're thinking more clearly and you're on top of the world.

I 'd like to share the fun, freedom and health of barefoot running with others... starting with one bare foot at a time. Come out and join us. Barefoot sandals/minimalist shoe wearers welcome. We'd love to see you in whatever shape, size or form. --- All levels welcome - tender foots and tough soles.
