Barefoot Running Step by Step (2011)

Always Remember…

  1. Running Barefoot should be comfortable (on almost any terrain)
  2. Running Barefoot should be easy
  3. Running Barefoot should be FUN!
If any of these are not true for you right now, then play with how you are running until it is more comfortable, easy, and joyful.

Run Surf City Marathon Barefoot!

Free Photos for Barefoot Runners! Canopy at Surf City Marathon 2013 Feb 2

The Canopy at Surf City Marathon 2013 Feb 2

Ken Bob’s canopy will be between mile 20 and 21 of the Surf City Marathon on Sunday. You’ll pass by twice, unless you drop out of the race at the turn-around…

Take your shoes off before you run or walk past, and Barefoot Ken Bob will try to shoot as many photos of you running barefoot as practical. Photos will be posted at and downloadable for FREE! Even if you cannot afford shoes, you can afford FREE photos!


If you’re not running/walking the marathon, feel free to hang out with us at the canopy. This is NOT an official aid station, you do NOT need to sign up as a volunteer at the Expo. Just show up, if you feel like it.

Bring snacks to share with the runners.

Where and When

  • 8:oo am – 11:00 am (or later)
  • Snack Bar at north end of Bolsa Chica State Beach

Limited FREE parking available in Sunset Beach, on Pacific Coast Hwy (north of Warner) and other side streets along Pacific Coast Hwy.

    Any tips or tricks on getting a bib for the full marathon?
    My training (1st marathon) wasn’t going well so i didn’t purchase one before it sold out. After a couple recent 20 milers (1/2 barefoot, 1/2 water socks) i’m feeling good & think i can finish 26.2.
    thanks, Mark

    • If you’re talking about trying to buy a number off someone else, I wouldn’t bother. Rather than paying good money to run illegitimately with someone else’s number and name, with no official results for yourself, just come down and join us at the canopy and get your 26.2 miles running back and forth encouraging other runners. You can even run down here from your home … depending on where you live, that’ll get you some, or most of the mileage.
