WORLD BAREFOOT CENTER IS NAMED TITLE SPONSOR OF THE 2016 FOOTSTOCK NATIONAL FIGURE 8 CHAMPIONSHIPS
Crandon, Wisconsin – It was announced Monday that the World Barefoot Center (WBC) has been named the official Title sponsor of Footstock, the world’s largest and most prestigious figure eight endurance barefoot championship.
The WBC was founded by 16-time US National Overall Barefoot Champ and 13-time World Barefoot Gold Medalist, Keith St. Onge of Winter haven, Florida along with the U.K.’s David Small, 4-time men’s Overall World Champ and current Open Men’s World Jump and Trick Record Holder.
The WBC is the country’s premiere barefoot training center.
Footstock co-founder Gary Mueller believes the partnership with the WBC will help ensure that the two-day National Championship in Crandon, Wisconsin will continue to grow.
“Keith and David, and their team at WBC are such great ambassadors for the sport of barefooting,” explains Mueller. “With their help, we believe we can continue to grow Footstock and ensure the next generation of barefooters will continue to see Figure Eight endurance barefooting as a great chance to compete against the world’s best barefooters on an equal stage.”
The National Figure Eight Endurance Barefoot Championships are slated to be held August 26-27, on Peshtigo Lake in Crandon, Wisconsin. Over $7,000 in prize money, the world’s largest cash barefoot purse is on the line. Over 130 skiers from 10 states and 5 countries are expected to compete in the two day championships. The event pits barefooters head to head to see who can go the farthest while battling wind and waves over a punishing mile and a half Figure Eight course. The last person standing on Sunday is crowned the Open National Champ. National titles will also be decided in Juniors, Womens, Seniors and Masters divisions.
