Barefoot Running to Raise Funds in Raising Trees!
It is always good to hear how barefoot running is being used as part of a fundraiser or for a good cause. That is why, if you are somewhere near Battersea Park and you want to break out those new Vibram or any minimalist running shoes you have, registration for the Tree-Athlon 5k Run is still ongoing!
This provides you the chance to be part of raising money for Trees for Cities and participate in a family festival with live music as well. The Tree-Athlon is set to happen on the 15th of September. Find out more here!
