Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to run barefoot?

Nope. We're introducing runners to the minimal principle. We expect many runners will be wearing running shoes and that's just fine. Come on and join us!

I created a team but I don't see it on the fundraising page, what's wrong?

Unfortunately, our event registration vendor, RaceIt.com, does not have the participant teams automatically linked to fundraising teams. However, its simple to create a fundraising page...from the Donate page, click the Start Fundraising button and create a page using your name or get creative with a name you would like to use. You can also upload a picture if you like.

Can I purchase Michael Sandler's book at the event? Will he sign it?

Books will be available at the event on a first-come first-served basis. To be sure, you can purchase a book for pickup at the Barefoot Fun Run here. Michael will be signing books after the event. This is tentatively scheduled for 10:45 am but may change as required. You don't have to be a participant to have Michael sign your book.

Are kids and families welcome?

Definitely, we included a shorter 3K course precisely for walkers and families with children. Kids don't need to register. We will only be providing adult shirt sizes.

What about strollers and wheelchairs?

Part of both courses will be on grassy, slightly uneven terrain. We don't recommend any device used for assistance that would not be practical or stable on such terrain.

Are there hotels nearby?

Yes! Here is a google maps link to all hotels nearby.
