Fantastic location, right across from the hills and canyons of Griffith Park. We’ll meet at A Runner’s Circle for a barefoot running workshop with Barefoot Ken Bob, the world’s greatest authority on barefoot running, and Eric Orton, the coach who convinced me I could race the Tarahumara then trained me to make it happen.
Try out a great selection of the latest in minimal footwear, including Inov-8, the New Balance Minimus, Vibram FiveFingers and more. Then we’ll head into the park for a run in the hills.
Don’t worry about pace or distance — Barefoot Ken Bob is personally scouting out a variety of interlocking loops, so you can pick your distance and still stay with the group. Come barefoot, nearly barefoot, or laced and cushioned to your heart’s content.
Barefoot Ken Bob is about to reveal the secrets he learned during 50+ years of barefoot running this May in Barefoot Running Step-By-Step, the definitive guide to the world’s oldest sport he co-authored with adventure writer Roy Wallack.
Come watch the master demonstrate the technique which will allow him, on May 14, to run 100 miles of trails in the inaugural Born to Run ultramarathon.
