Bridger Ridge Barefoot Run

The talented and adventurous runner Damian Stoy made a recent attempt to run the Bridger Ridge Run course barefoot.

You can read about the challenges he faced barefooting the Ridge and see some pictures at the Outer Local Blog.

It sounds like October may be a little late in the season for a barefoot jaunt in the Bridgers.

For those of you inspired by running barefoot in the cold and snow, check out this video of Wim Hof the Ice Man.

  1. Thank you! My goal is to inspire others to follow their dreams and goals no matter how ‘silly’ they may be. Thanks for doing the same!

  2. Thanks for sharing! I don’t recommend others try this or even run barefoot at all. But I do hope I inspired others to think outside of the box and challenge themselves.

    What I do recommend is learning to run more efficiently. I teach Chi Running which is very effective but there are other techniques out there that work for some folks such as Pose or Good Form Running. Check them out!

    By the way, I recovered perfectly fine and looking back, kinda wish I kept going…

    • Damian,

      I’m glad you did not inflict any long term damage to your tootsies. Most of us would have a tough time just getting from the parking lot to the start of the trail if barefoot.

      It is inspiring to see you put the concepts of Chi Running and low impact running in general to the ultimate test and courageously embrace taking on imposing challenges.
