Extra! Extra! Read all about it! RunBare has BIG news!

Crown Publishing, a division of Random House, the number one publisher in the world, has picked up our book Barefoot Running. With the interest in Barefoot Running worldwide and the entire minimalist movement, we're shooting for the top of the charts. Crown Publishing is re-releasing the book on September 20th, when it will become available at all major bookstores nationwide. In the meantime, you can pre-order the book at a discounted price.

The release will coincide with the launch of our fall tour, RunBare America, encompassing 30 plus cities this fall, and continuing with another estimated 50 plus cities this spring (Schedule below). Along the way RunBare will be holding free Fun Runs, free clinics and book signings, AND running in one half-marathon or marathon per week to help promote Barefoot Running and the movement. Here's a fun trailer we made to celebrate the new tour! RunBare America!

And if you don't already know Michael's remarkable story of healing through barefoot running, check out this inspirational video!

With Random House on board, Barefoot Running is sure to take a giant leap forward!
