Barefoot runner Blake Johnston runs 100km of NSW South Coast for physical challenge
By ABC News AU

It all started when surf coach Blake Johnston cut his heel while surfing in Indonesia.

Wearing shoes was too painful, so he started recovering barefoot on the treadmill.

"In winter I came back [to Australia] and said, 'I'm not going to stop, I'll give it a crack and toughen up' and I started running barefoot," he said.

"I now probably run 90 per cent of the time barefoot and I try and train every day, running between 60 and 100 kilometres." To continue reading, please visit: https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-10...oot-runner-tackles-gruelling-journey/12766490...

By Stoke-on-Trent Live

Stoke City fan Chris Devine has completed his 15th marathon in 38 days – after running large parts of the epic challenge without shoes.

Meet the Yakima man who strived to walk barefoot around the world
By King5

You’ve probably never heard of Hippolyte Martinet. But once you learn about his journey, you’ll never forget him.

"That was a story I had to share," Martinet's great-great niece, Micae Martinet said. "From what I understand, it started out as a spirited debate between his brother and himself."
