Hi guys,

I'm new in this forum and wanted to share an interesting video of a barefoot trail runner:

Amazon Race Forest - Lobo Blanco - Barefoot Trail Running




it was taken at a event called "Amazon Race Forest", held in the mountain jungle of San Roque de Cumbaza, Tarapoto, Peru.
This guy is a local nicknamed "Lobo Blanco" who runs barefoot (and fast!) in the technical jungle terrain. Pretty cool if you ask me.

Ricardo

Impressive.

Have recently come across this.  The author of a book on barefoot running talks about this kind of thing, although perhaps not as extreme!

There are some surfaces that you wouldn't want to put bare feet on: a surface of rough, sharp stones of greatly varying size is one. You couldn't run on it -- even walking carefully in VFFs with the "classic" sole is difficult.

And this matters why?  It's easier to wash off my feet than it is a pair of VFF's Grin

Actually, I've gotten worse stone bruising in KSO's than I have running on the same rocky trails barefoot.  When you are bare, your natural reflexes take over and with proper form you are landing very lightly.  I can kick my kids butt's on our stone drive running barefoot, walking on the other hand can yield all types of spastic movements.

I also find walking or barefoot you feel so connected to the ground, to the earth, to all thats around you. It's really quite wonderful, and I personally try and do it as much as possible. This of course usually requires getting out of the city, which I am more than happy to do!
