In honor of "International Barefoot runners day" today, we are pleased to announce the first ever Metro10 "Barefoot runners challenge"
Offering up a $250. prize for the first BAREFOOT runner to complete the beautiful, yet grueling 10 mile course through beautiful historic Albion New York.
Course features asphalt, gravel trails, lush grassy orchards, challenging chip seal, as well as a scenic jaunt down the Erie Canal (gavel) towpath trail.
If that weren't enough there are two steel deck bridges, the last of which at the nine mile mark will feel like it was made my a sadistic former running shoe manufacture who switched careers to structural engineer with an ornate fascination for manufacturing giant structures out of pins and needles!
(No seriously it's that bad, enjoy!
Following the race runners can stay for a great all day event of live music, food, libations and vendors!
(no minimal nothing, this is a skin to surface challenge!) runner will revive a $250 prize!
The prize will be divided, $125 for the runner and $125. to the Metro10 benefactor charity Warrior House WNY (please check them out).
Date Saturday 8/20/16
Race time 8:20am
Location Albion, New York
