Ron Pickering Memorial Fund
The Ron Pickering Memorial Fund (RPMF) raises funds to help young aspiring talented athletes reach their true potential. The RPMF helps recipients make the difficult transition from junior to senior level through support for equipment, specialist coaching or travel and importantly help build the athletes’ confidence and self esteem through recognition. RPMF has raised and awarded over £1.5 million in small but significant grants to over 2,500 talented young British athletes, including all of the London 2012 and 2016 individual Olympic athletics medallists. “Sport is the most precious commodity we have to hand on to the next generation” Ron Pickering OBE Read more about the RPMF at

Hi, thanks for visiting our page. 

In case you don't know who we are, we are Vivobarefoot.We believe a natural human foot is all the technology you need to survive and thrive. We exist to let you live, move and play as if you were barefoot- all day every day. We are challengers of the norm and embrace ancient wisdom while applying modern technology to create truly revolutionary footwear. 

Enough about us though...why are we supporting The Ron Pickering Memorial Fund. Simple, as a charity they support young British athletes develope into stars of the future. To put into perspective the work they do, over two thirds of the British athletics Olympic teams in 2008 and 2012 had at some stage in their careers received support from the fund - including all of the London 2012 Olympic athletics medalists! (That's some stats)

As a team, we believe that everyone should have the chance to enjoy sport, remembering what it was like to run as a child! By supporting the Ron Pickering Memorial fund, you are giving youngsters the chance to not only enjoy sport, but reach their true potential. 

The team of 5 from Vivobarefoot (including company owner/MD Galahad Clark) will be pushing their way around the 26 (385 yard) course, in the hopes that you can give generously!

Thank you
