ALEC Godwin made it through the entire 10-mile race with no shoes on.

The 40-year-old, of Methuen Road, Southsea, is also known as the Barefoot Blonde and said: ‘I do it because it’s natural.

‘A year-and-a-half ago I read a book called Born to Run which inspired me.

‘It was quite a painful run at first, but I have learned how to run to make it easier.’
