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 highlight was running Leicester marathon completely barefoot in memory of my Dad and raise money for the LOROS hospice.
I have also returned to cycling, but road cycling rather than mountain biking this time. My first event was a 100km sportive, closely followed by a middle distance duathlon (30km run / 47km cycle / 10km run)
