Step into an adventure that set the country alight.
Anna McNuff had never run a mile without shoes on before. And yet, one British summer, she set off to run a (very) wiggly route from the Shetland Islands to London – on a mission to cover the distance of 100 marathons… in bare feet.
Fuelled by a desire to push mind and body to the limit (and to drink tea, and eat biscuits), she zigzagged over rugged coastlines, through small villages, across windswept moors, along golden sandy beaches and even down the odd picturesque A-road. As the journey gathered pace, she was joined by thousands of other runners and soon learned that, even though she was (usually) the only one in bare feet, this was far from a solo journey.
Barefoot Britain is warm-hearted, funny and painfully honest – featuring remote islands, big cities, kind strangers and setbacks-a-plenty. It’s a story which reveals the messy reality of taking on a crazy idea and, above all, shows how one person’s will to dig deep and carry on can encourage others to do the same.
