We're still in the early planning stages, but our plans for a barefoot runner meetup in Grand Rapids in association with the Fifth Third Riverbank Run on May 8th is coming along nicely. Our plans thus far- meet up Friday night, run Saturday morning, then meet again after the race. Details will be forthcoming.
Here's our website: http://barefootrunninguniversity.com/barefootmeetup.htm
...and our Facebook group: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=299464236328
Our original plan was to try to set a Guinness World Record, but we haven't heard from Guinness yet. If that doesn't happen, it will still likely be the largest collection of barefoot runners in US history! Minimalist shoe runners are welcome, too. Email me if you would like more details.
