Barefoot Runners: I'll Get You Slimed
Well, I put the offer out there to any barefoot runners. This is the e-mail that I sent out:
I'll comp a FREE ENTRY (including free event shirt, support, and food) to any barefoot runner that will START AND FINISH either the 10, 20, or 31 mile events at my "Psycho WyCo" trail event on Feb 11th, 2006, as long as they run it truly barefoot. Honest.
I know that trail runs in the Winter are not most runner's cup of tea, whether shod or not, but it would be cool to have some unshod representation at this grueling event.
Put the word out to any of the "Toe Slappers" that might be interested. Link for race. Be sure that they read the race report (with photos and results). Our finish rate last year was just over 50% for the 50K.
They can fill out the snail mail version of the entry form, circle the distance, and put in bold letters at the top, "Free: Psycho-Tough Barefoot Runner."
I will also add a special Barefoot Runner Awards Division, this year.
I hope I get some takers. It would be the Shiznight!
