Moab trail half/full marathon
A Trail Runner Magazine "Bucket List" event! I'm putting this out now as we've had several members interested in this. Register now. They say the Saturday half marathon fills up by mid-June. Go look at the web site. Awesome scenery! I have already signed up for the Saturday half marathon and have my hotel reserved. There is also a 5K and full marathon. This would be great if we had a group from Colorado go. Based on some of the feedback from people that went to Moab this could be a barefoot run. Gary

    What we're about

    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. There's something to be said about feeling the earth beneath one's feet - feeling connected and grounded with nature.

    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. --- All levels welcome - tender foots and tough soles. We have meetups about once a month during summer in the area between Castle Rock and Boulder. Typically we join an organized races that run 5k, 10k, up to half marathons and that run on hard surfaces such as bike trails or streets and also trails.
