If you’re looking for something to do this weekend, check out the 2014 GoPro Mountain Games at Vail. For the full schedule of events and more info, go to

One of the places to check out is the Vibram Water Run, located in Adventure Village. Vibram, maker of the Five Fingers barefoot sports shoes, has a pool filled with non-Newtonian fluid (a mix of water and corn starch).

As long as you run fast enough, you have officially run on water. If you don’t run fast enough, you sink. Everyone over 16 years of age is invited to compete. Those who complete the Water Run receive a limited edition Vibram pin. The Water Run is open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday.

Everyone is invited to take photos and video, tagging them with #WaterRun and #GoProMtnGames. Vibram also has other locations all around the Go Pro Mountain Games where you can play Vibram Disc Golf and buy Vibram merchandise.
