Chris is the founder member of the Barefoot Beginner blog.

After 25 years of running in and around the West Pennine Moors, the wear and tear finally took its toll and his body gave up. Chris was either going to give up running altogether or needed to find a way to become injury free. He discovered barefoot running and started the Barefoot Beginner blog. .

He is also the co-owner of Holy Well Brewing and champions locally brewed beer from the county of Lancashire.

Barefoot Beginner is about self-experimentation and finding a way. After 5 long years, including a year running every day barefoot, Chris is now back running injury free. It feels good.
