NYC Barefoot Run


Two Rivers Treads at NYC Barefoot Run

Hundreds of barefoot and minimalist runners gathered on Governors Island this morning to participate in the Second Annual NYC Barefoot Run. What a great event! Participants began together and ran as many 2.1-mile loops around the island as they desired. I ran two laps, mostly in Vibrams, some barefoot. Although I’ve been running in Vibrams for about two years, I stick to moderate pavement mileage and alternate with minimalist-sneakered long runs. The weekend’s seminars and today’s run inspired me to ramp up my barefoot pavement mileage.

My favorite participants were the Two Rivers Treads guys:
