In celebration of the New York City Marathon, Christopher McDougall, author of the New York Times best seller Born to Run, will be hosting an evening of barefoot running. The line-up is impressive, to say the least. You can expect:
– A greeting by Peter Sarsgaard, master of ceremonies and star of An Education, Kinsey, and Garden State
– A panel on barefoot running, featuring Dr. Daniel Lieberman, Harvard’s Barefoot Professor; Barefoot Ted McDonald, the barefoot ultrarunner; John Durant, urban hunter-gatherer; and Eric Orton, the innovative coach whose training methods made Born to Run possible.
– A feature presentation from Christopher McDougall
– A reading from Born to Run, selected and performed by Peter Sarsgaard
Bonus: Anyone who purchases a ticket to the event is automatically entered to win a VIP experience: Front row seats, Vibram FiveFingers, a signed copy of Born To Run, and Saturday morning run with Chris McDougall and Barefoot Ted to complete the experience.
