Johnny Patterson from Barefoot Run came by to tell us all about the fun 5k they are doing this Saturday.
It is called The Naked Foot 5K and it is the first national barefoot optional race series. People bring shoes to donate to the charity Soles4Souls and then have the option to run barefoot in our cross country-like course.
They are also one of the first 5k's in the country to allow kids under 12 to run for free! The event is all about family, fun, fitness and collecting TONS of shoes for Soles4Souls.
