If you’re intrigued, confused or cynical about the barefoot phenomenon in the running world then the Barefoot Connection Conference should be a date for your diary.

Saturday 22nd June: Presentation-led lecture style, with afternoon workshops

Sunday 23rd June: Workshops on barefoot running, barefoot conditioning and barefoot parkour, plus an optional 10K Trail Event (a race for those who fancy it, a trot for those who prefer, or a run-walk combo for those who prefer to take in the views, terrains & their textures).
