Milind Soman Is Running Barefoot From Ahmedabad To Mumbai And That’s Why He’s The Real Ironman

Milind Soman loves running.

He is an accomplished athlete too, having won the Ironman triathlon championships last year. He completed a course of a 3.8-km swim, an 180.2-km cycle ride and a 42.2-km run in just over 15 hours.

And he is 50 years old.

How does one top that? Run between cities in different states – BAREFOOT. Yes. Milind Soman wants to run from Ahmedabad to Mumbai. He started running on July 26th.

This means no cycling, trains, buses or car rides. Oh, and no planes either. Just him, his bare feet and the road.


And his progress so far? He ran 67 kilometers in just one day! This is him when he reached Anand


And by the looks of this video, he looks like he is on a regular morning jog

He points out that the weather is very humid, and if you look closely, he is sweating a lot too. But that has not made him give up!

We wish Milind Soman the best in his endeavor to complete The Great Run.

You inspire us every day Mr. Soman!
