Author of legendary running novel “Born to Run” will be touring the United States on what he calls “The Naked Tour”. This promotional tour celebrates barefoot running and coincides with the paperback release of the “Born to Run” novel. Various cities from coast to coast (see list below) are hosting McDougall and his team of naked running experts.
For those who haven’t read “Born to Run”, we suggest you run to your local bookstore asap or purchase a copy online.
In short, Chris McDougall’s adventures in the Mexican Copper Canyons with the Tarhumara Indians; who he claims are super-athletes, led him to his obsession with running barefoot and his strong belief that shoes may in fact be the cause of many American’s running injuries.
