International Triathlon Union allows Barefoot Running

Prior to this month, running barefoot in a race with the International Triathlon Union (ITU) would have resulted in disqualification. However, that rule has now been removed. Thanks to education by barefooters and showing benefits of barefoot running, the ITU decided to remove the shoe requirement to include all runners.
