How to get started barefoot running

We caught up with the Barefoot Crew 5k, who've created a global barefoot community to get people running barefoot.

We chatted with Vic Owens, Ben Weeks, Damian Kennedy and Kase Lewis all about barefoot running and the barefoot crew answered your questions like:

  • what sort of distance can you run barefoot
  • what's the worst thing you've stepped in
  • how do you get started in barefoot running
  • and of course, how do you avoid running on sharp stuff

Have a watch and follow the BarefootCrew5k on Instagram and take part, for free from anywhere in the world, every Thursday.
