I’m Bob Allsopp and I have been running barefoot and in minimalist shoes since February 2011.
I live in Market Harborough, Leicestershire, have been running since August 2009 and enjoyed mountain biking for a few years before that.
I have raced various distances from “The Magic Mile” to “The Shires & Spires 35 Mile Ultra” as well as a 50 day running streak.
My current experiment is running purely barefoot which started straight after The London Marathon in April 2015.
I have also returned to mountain biking but use a single-speed hardtail as a more minimalist approach!
This year I will run my first barefoot marathon…
