India’s Ironman Milind Soman is on the Move Again – Barefoot from Ahmedabad to Mumbai

India’s ironman Milind Soman is setting us some serious fitness goals again – this time by running barefoot from Ahmedabad to Mumbai.

Former supermodel and Bollywood actor Milind Soman took the glamour world by surprise last year when he celebrated turning 50 by doing the Ironman race in Zurich. This man who did not like cycles and had not been near a swimming pool for a couple of decades trained hard to enrol for a tough triathlon – the Ironman involved participating in a gruelling 3.8 km swim, a 180 km bike ride and a 42.2 km run.

Now, continuing his pursuit of fitness, Soman is attempting to run barefoot a distance of 570-km between Ahmedabad and Mumbai, via Silvassa, for the Great India Run, billed as the country’s first multi-city ultra marathon.


Soman started running from Ahmedabad on July 26 and completed 67 km on the first day itself to reach Anand.  On the second day, he completed another 62 km in the extremely humid weather.

In a Facebook post he shared a video of himself running on the highway like a casual jogger out for a morning run. The fact that he is barefoot does not seem to be bothering him at all.
