Why Is Milind Soman Running Barefoot From Ahmedabad to Mumbai?
Milind Soman will be undertaking a journey of 570 km on foot.
Milind Soman is 50 years old but has proven that age is just a number. The actor is undertaking a journey from Ahmedabad to Mumbai.
What’s so special about it?
He is running barefoot from Ahmedabad to Mumbai to promote running as a sport in India.
He has become a part of the Great India Run initiative which is a multi-city ultra-marathon starting from New Delhi and ending in Mumbai, covering a distance of 1480 km. Milind Soman has joined the Ahmedabad-Mumbai leg of the marathon, set on covering the 570 km distance barefoot.
The former supermodel is also an Ironman triathlon winner which is considered one of the hardest challenges in the world to complete. It is an approximately 225 km race which includes a 3.86 km swim, 180.25 km bike ride and a 42.20 km run. He completed the triathlon in 15 hours 19 minutes.
If Soman can complete that race, this isn’t such a hard task for him. What makes this commendable is the fact that he is braving the heat, humidity and also rain while running barefoot.
Soman started running on 26th July and today is the 7th day of his journey. He has already run approximately 270 km. The marathon is scheduled to end on 4th August.
Milind Soman’s effort is inspiring and we applaud his commitment and wish him all the best.
