Welcome to "Hua Hin Barefoot Running Camp"
For the first time in Thailand, here is an opportunity to learn hands-on how barefoot running can help you run lighter, faster and injury-free. Whether you’re in minimalistic shoes, barefoot, or a complete tenderfoot, (wearing conventional running shoes) the "Hua Hin Barefoot Running Camp" is designed to help you become a better runner, with effortless form to carry you through your runs.
No matter your level or experience of running, you’ll walk away from this 2-day camp with a new profound approach to running light, happy and injury-free.
The number one goal above all is to have fun. It’s never too late to start working on your form, or get back into the game. Training barefoot helps you strengthen your feet and find your own natural, impact-free stride whether you want to run in or out of a shoe. The theory behind barefoot running is that it will keep you healthy, allows you to run when you thought you couldn’t (bad knees, hips, feet, plantar fasciitis, etc) and helps you become the lightest, most efficient runner you can be. "Hua Hin Barefoot Running Camp" will be informative, inspiring and fun!
The camp will be held outdoors (on the beach and hills of Hua Hin) so please check the weather forecast, bring your sunscreen, and dress appropriately for running in all sorts of terrain.
