The BRS is delighted to be supporting Anna McNuff in her incredible #BarefootBritain challenge, in which she will attempt to run 100 marathons along the length of Britain, completely barefoot! Anna will encounter every kind of terrain - sand and rocks, marshes and woods, uplands and lowlands, highways and byways – taking it all in her unshod stride. If ever a challenge existed to prove to the world that barefoot is best, this is it!

We can all help her along the way. Below is a message from the #BarefootBritain team that explains how…

“It's so good to hear from fellow Barefoot runners, I know Anna loves the running community and will be so happy that fellow barefoot warriors are behind her.

There are lots of ways you can get involved - you can sign up to run alongside her, take a look at the calendar...

By having experienced my first half marathon approximately 8 months back in the cold & pouring rain I decided to sign up for another one this Spring –hopefully giving me a much better chance of not having to do battle with the weather!

The Tewkesbury half was the event I chose –it attracts around 1000 entrants, so it’s not massive, but at the same time is plenty large enough to get lost in the crowd…

I’d read some reasonable reports of previous year’s races so was actually looking forward to it (I normally get a bit nervous at these kind of things –no idea why, it’s entirely unnecessary, but I just do for some reason). Persuaded my partner to run it with me, which helps (she runs in VFFs). We decided to stick together throughout the course (moral support & all that!).
