Anna McNuff: My Barefoot Run Around Britain

As if Running 2,352 miles is not hard enough to do it barefoot is a whole different story and one you need to hear!

In 2019, I ran 2,352 miles (the distance of 90 marathons) through Britain – completely barefoot.

Starting in the Shetland Islands and ending five months later in London, I weaved my way along rugged coastlines, through small villages, across moors, along beaches, over farmland and even pitter-pattered down the odd picturesque A-road too.

There were many mishaps and disasters along the way, but helping to keep me going through the tough times was a mission to deliver motivational talks to over 1,700 young women. I was also was joined by over 2,500 local runners during 148 days on the road and somehow the kind British public passed my kit bag along like a giant baton while I ran.

It was a story that reached over 100 million people through international media and without a doubt the toughest and yet most amazing journey of my life.
