My friend Barefoot Rick Roeber is putting on a FREE Barefoot Running Workshop soon. If you're able to get to the KC area for it, you're sure to meet some great people, learn valuable information and have a good time! Here's the info in Rick's words:
From time to time, folks have asked me when we were going to have a barefoot running workshop in the Kansas City area similar to what Ken Saxton is doing in Huntington Beach and Ted McDonald in Seattle. While I don't presume to know all there is about barefoot running, I do know a few things that I believe would be helpful to someone just getting into barefoot running or those thinking about it. (And, for the more experienced barefoot runners, your help and expertise would be appreciated!)
We will probably talk for about a half an hour on form and function of barefoot running. If folks are comfortable with form critque, we may ask a couple of runners if we can critique their barefoot running form to help us distinguish good and bad form. After all the talking, we will all go for a barefoot run as a group. Distances will vary. (We will be running the half mile loop at Roe Park so folks can choose their distance.)
If we get a reasonable turnout and if there is continued interest, we will have more workshops in the coming months.
So, here are the factoids:
Who - All and any barefoot runners from the greater KC area (all experience levels needed!)
When - 8 a.m.
Where - Roe Park, 10400 Roe Ave, Overland Park, Kansas (map below)
Cost - FREE!!!
Hope to see you there!
