The 2011 Merrell Adventure Run - Sweet Terrain Race!

When I attended Merrell Barefoot Launch at their concept store a couple of months ago, I was amazed with the beauty and functionality of the Merrell Barefoot Collection. What I like about it is that it looks like a regular shoe, unlike the others that looks so awkward.

I once became so interested with running barefoot. I even tried doing it. The experience was great but because of my condition, I discontinue. I will just saved my dreams for now.

So, after giving us a great barefoot shoe line, Merrell is again giving us a race that will be a good place to test those Trail Gloves!

On its second year, the Merrell Adventure Run again leads you through dirt roads, flowing streams, river crossing, rock scrambling, and uphill & downhill trails in a new but equally challenging & breathtaking race course at Timberland Heights, San Mateo, Rizal. Brave up to this outdoor challenge and run on the rugged side this June 18, 2011.
