The current 24 hour barefoot record resides in southern Oregon, it also belongs to the man pictured above. Unfortunately those credentials didn't translate last weekend at the Rocky Raccoon 100 where he tried in earnest to break the 100 mile barefoot trail record.
I couldn't help but post this gruesome pic to detail just how hard going for such a record is and truth be told he's done his due diligence on this one. When I met Todd 5 years ago at the Mt Ashland Hill Climb he was sporting aqua socks and finishing in the top 5.
Perhaps the most amazing comment I heard while on the course was, "yeah barefoot, but was that guy wearing a kilt?" You never cease to astound Ragsdale.
