Attention barefoot runners! Dr. Davis wants to study you.

Hunter-Gatherer.com just posted that Dr. Irene Davis at the University of Delaware is looking for barefoot runners to participate in a study.

Sounds quite simple — one online survey a month for a year — and you get entered to win a GPS.  Most importantly, you help bring more science and understanding to barefooting.   Which is awesome.  I just emailed them saying I’d like to participate.  Details and contact info:

Attention barefoot runners! The University of Delaware Running Laboratory would like to invite you to take part in a web based running survey in order to better understand the habits of the barefoot runner. Your participation will involve 15 minutes of your time each month to fill out an online survey. You will fill out one survey a month for a year, upon which your name will be entered into a raffle to win a GPS! To qualify for this opportunity you must be relatively healthy, between the ages of 18 and 50 and run more than 10 miles/week. You also must have been running barefoot for more than 6 months, and at least 50% of your mileage must be done completely barefoot. Please contact Allison Altman at coordinator.runsurvey@gmail.com for more information.
