I don't know if you have room on your schedule for one of the Marathons I'm hosting here in Boone, but it's ideal for barefoot running (after I've swept the twigs and rocks). It's not BQ certified, but they're all free races.

A lot of people seem to be interested in the Flatlanders Marathon, which is in July. Boone has pretty mild summers because of the elevation.

I'd like to be able to post "Course Records" faster than my 4:26. I imagine you'd be in the 3:20s on this course.
