    French physician travels to Edinburgh to complete his 109th barefoot marathon

    By Edinburgh News


    Sidy Diallo, 67, from France, is a physician and barefoot runner that has completed a total of 345 marathons from across the globe. Sidy has travelled to Edinburgh to tackle his 109th 26.2 mile run without any footwear.


    He first started running barefoot in 2015 after being inspired by the history of the origin of the sport. He said: “It is just natural biology and human instinct to run without shoes.

    “I just try to live like our ancestors, which is only natural. We should be running like hunters, it is the only way of life. We were trained by our ancestors when they hunted for prey barefooted.”
