Barefooters and anyone interested in joining some of the country’s top ultra runners are welcome to come join in a very special event for barefoot and natural runners alike.
McDougall created the Naked Tour as a nationwide celebration of running’s bare essentials which coincides with the paperback release of Born to Run. The tour visits thirteen cities across the country.
What can you expect from this event?
On his website, McDougall stresses this event is for everyone. The goal is to learn from each other, not beat each other, so we’ll stagger the start by pace groups. Each group will be led by an experienced pacer, like Scott Jurek so you’ll get the chance to pepper them with questions and mimic their style while you run.
“Show up, don’t stress, and remember Caballo’s motto: First focus on easy, ’cause if that’s all you get, that ain’t so bad.” You’ll be surrounded by lots of other people who are out for a good time and just getting the hang of minimalism.

And according to McDougall,
“This could be the greatest Naked event of all.”
“We’re going to run up Flagstaff and hold the Naked Cabaret in a gorgeous stone amphitheater on the side of the mountain.”
