Michael Swinton "Bruce" Tulloh (29 September 1935 – 28 April 2018) was an athlete and long-distance runner from England. He won the European title in the men's 5,000 metres at the 1962 European Championships in Belgrade, Yugoslavia. He was also part of a national title winning team Portsmouth A.C. in cross-country and road running in the 1960s. He was famous for running barefoot in many of his races. His twin daughters were teenage running phenomena in the 1980s setting age-best marks running for their club Swindon A.C. They also ran barefoot.
In 1969, Tulloh ran 2876 miles across America from Los Angeles to New York City in 64 days. This is described in his book Four Million Footsteps, published by Pelham Books and as a Mayflower paperback in 1970.
