I am considering running a 21km race barefoot. I have run 10km+ barefoot many times, a marathon in VFF so calves are not a problem. But I worry about water etc on the ground. Last race there were about 50 000 people running this race and at the drinking stations there were pools of water and sweet sticky sport drinks. My KSO were like sponges
I worry about running barefoot with all the sticky sport drinking water. I also worry about all the crowding and having to look forward not downward, maybe you miss some pavement and get a bleeding big toe which would make the race less fun
Tell me your experiences about running barefoot in big races!
