Anywhere, with a friend, and report your finish times
10K BAREFOOT CHARITY RUN/WALK/HIKE
In support of CARE International UK (http://www.careinternational.org.uk/)
Being a barefooter can sometimes be a lonely business….
The aim of this event is to encourage barefoot runners, walkers and hikers from all around the world to meet and run, walk or hike with other barefooters, and then share their experiences with the rest of the world.
The 10K must be done in one run/walk/hike, WITH AT LEAST ONE OTHER BAREFOOTER, anytime, anywhere between 1st March and 31st August 2014. It can be done as a run, walk, hike, ramble, track event, social run, fell race, competitive road race or TrailBall® Challenge etc. and in conjunction with any other existing 10K event PROVIDED that at least one other barefooter attends the same event.
IMPORTANT – NO SHOES ARE ALLOWED FOR ANY OF THE 10K – including minimalist shoes, toe shoes, socks or huararche sandals!
As this is intended to be a sociable charitable event rather than a solitary virtual effort, all event organisers are strongly encouraged to invite all other barefooters in their area to join their run/walk/hike.
All entrants (or group of entrants) must post their times and a report with photos to the Amis Sans Shoes Facebook page to receive their medals.
CARE International reached more than 82 million people last year. They worked in 87 countries, implementing long-term programmes to fight poverty, responding to humanitarian emergencies, and advocating for policy change to improve the lives of the poorest people.
