The Kelowna duo are planning a 500okay run barefoot for a trigger they care about – Okanagan

A Kelowna duo take on the ultimate challenge – one that could earn them a place on the Guinness World Records.

Asha Tremblay and Savannah Holmes say they will walk 500 kilometers barefoot.

“We’re going to walk from the north of Vancouver Island to the south end of Vancouver Island to raise awareness and raise funds for Enhanced Humanity Uganda,” Tremblay said.

“It’s a leadership training program that was actually developed by my mother,” added Holmes.

“I grew up there (in Uganda) during my teenage years and there is a real lack of educational support … so we developed a program that allows children to change their own lives.”

“We’re actually going to be running 63 kilometers a day – so a marathon and a half day – and the goal is to finish on June 28th, so (we) give ourselves eight days,” said Holmes.

With the help of professional trainers and medical experts, you will push your body to the limit.

“Our bodies are made to run, but not with shoes on, so it was a pretty incredible experience to run barefoot and learn about the kinetics of it all,” Tremblay said.

The couple record their training online in hopes of inspiring people to join their cause. You have created a virtual five-kilometer run, for which participants can register for a fee that goes directly to Enhanced Humanity Uganda and complete it in their free time.
