That’s not all. As the 51-year-old ran all that distance barefoot – becoming the only one to do so. Now, that is quite a feat.

The runner had his mother by his side, with whom he even posted a picture on his Instagram account titled ‘Aai at #UltramanFlorida Day 3!!! 🙂 #MilindUshaSoman’.

The international-level athlete is also closely associated with Pinkathon, India’s biggest women’s run. In 2015, the actor-model successfully completed the ‘Ironman Triathlon,’ in which participants have to cover a 2.4-mile (3.86 km) swim, a 112-mile (180.25 km) bicycle ride and a marathon 26.2-mile (42.2 km) run, without a break.
