Barefoot Running & Walking 101 (CO Springs)

  • to
  • Barefoot Park

    Roller Coaster Rd & Northgate Blvd, Colorado Springs, CO (map)

    39.029285 -104.781837

  • HUGE thanks to Brandon Longcrier for his hard work putting this clinic together! He tried to secure a venue at the Air Force Academy, but it became cost prohibitive. So we'll be meeting at Barefoot Park instead! (how fitting!)

    Join us for a basic barefoot running and walking clinic as we discuss the benefits of going barefoot in all aspects of our lives. Topics will include: proper barefoot running/walking technique, choosing minimalist footwear (if you have to wear a shoe), plus the amazing health benefits of getting grounded, aka Earthing.

    A $5 donation will get you entered to win one of our books (Barefoot Running or Barefoot Walking courtesy of Brandon).

    Brandon is also arranging a shoe drive. So bring your old "sneakers" (athletic shoes only), pitch em, and spend the rest of the day barefoot. The shoes are recycled into running tracks, basketball courts, tennis courts, etc... not reused. So you don't have to worry about someone else inheriting your shoe-related foot problems. Check out the program here:

    Sorry folks, but due to scheduling issues the Barefoot Workshop on May 25th has been cancelled. We'll try to have it again in the near future. Stay Bare Everyone!
