Worldwide, after the publication of Christopher MacDaugall’s best-seller “Born to Run”, barefoot running has been catching the fancy of many runners. ‘Barefoot Ted,’ one of the main characters in ‘Born to Run’ is the Brand Ambassador for NM BHM and will be running barefoot in November. Celebrity runner Milind Soman is the chief guest, who will also be running for the first time without running shoes. “As my feet and ankles have increased in strength and conditioning, I don’t think I will feel the need to run in a conventional running shoe in the future,” says Milind Soman, who has already discarded regular running shoes.
