Barefoot Meetup in Colorado Springs

I'm going to be in Colorado Springs on August 7, and Harry came up with the brilliant idea of meeting up and doing a 5k race.

As it happens, there's a race called the Run for Rwanda, which is run in conjunction with a race in Rwanda, and the proceeds go to benefit a health center in a town in Rwanda.

Overview and race details.

The race does have a barefoot category, BTW. I don't know that I'm going to be up to that challenge, and I don't know if Harry will be able to turn off the killer instinct and go barefoot, but perhaps someone else can take the prize. ;)

I live a few hundred feet above sea level, so this race is likely to be the end of me. :)

I look forward to meeting any barefoot/minimalist runners in the area.
