A second evening with Jason Robillard!

FREE EVENT! Presented by Merrell Barefoot

Jason Robillard is the founder and director of Barefoot Running University. He has been a barefoot runner since 1992, and has run race distances ranging from 5k all the way up to 100 miles.

He is the co-founder of the Barefoot Runners Society, a member of the Society for Barefoot Living, and has been a certified professional educator since 1999.

Needless to say, Jason is one of the preeminent resources for barefoot running!

This event will start with an Intro to Barefoot Running (15-30 minutes) that includes drills, followed by a short run around SoHo to put the lessons into practice. Minimalist footwear will be provided by Merrell Barefoot for people that do not currently own a pair.

There will be a coat/bag check, so you can change in to your running gear in the store.

Electrolyte beverages will be available.

Raffle prizes include a free pair of minimalist footwear!

Jason will hang around until 9:30pm to answer any questions and sign his book: "The Barefoot Running Book First Edition: A Practical Guide to the Art and Science of Barefoot and Minimalist Shoe Running" which will be available for sale.

    This was a great event. Jason presented nice concise intro to barefoot running form, with useful demos. Excellent Q & A that covered a good range of issues. Great selection of vendors and cool raffle prizes. Things to improve: 1.) Set it up so that we get to try out the ABCs (posture, balanced step, cadence) as they're being discussed. 2.) Time the run to ensure enough daylight. It was nearly dark when we started and harder to pay attention to the ground while navigating the soho crowds. All in all, a great experience!

    We are on rain or shine! Jason runs ultras with no shoes! I don't think a little rain will bother him!
    Last nights event was great, you don't wanna miss it tonight!

    And if coming barefoot, no need to worry about wet clammy feet. Skin dries instantly unlike shoes which also get ruined!

    To you guys that want to come barefoot: You can absolutely do so! We are going to have a very mixed group at these events, from purists, bareform runners to folks looking to transition to barefoot and form! So dont worry about coming shoe-less!
