    Barefoot man seen travelling through Cornwall is running 900-miles to Scotland on 'sustainability

    By Cornwall Live

    An environmentalist is running a 900-mile route from Land's End to John O'Grouts barefoot, in a 30-day journey he is calling the 'sustainability barefoot adventure'.

    Tony Riddle, a 47-year-old dad of three (soon to be four), kicked off his run on Sunday (September 1) from Land's End, the most westerly point of mainland UK and is running to John O'Grouts, the most northerly point.

    He is covering 30 miles per day for 30 days and along the way hopes to raise £30,000 for six environmental organisations that he will be meeting along the way - including Cornwall based Surfers Against Sewage.

    Tony, who lives in West Hampstead, London with his wife and children, is embarking on the challenge in the hopes that he will highlight the importance of connecting with the environment and to also demonstrate the possibilities of human physicality.

    "We are so disconnected from and void of nature, how can we ever relate to our environmental issues and fully commit to sustainability?" asks Tony, "If we can't connect or relate to nature, what chance do we have of saving it, and ourselves?

    The techniques are all from the Pose Running book which I think was a great book to pick up the understanding of what you are trying to do when you run barefoot.

    Running from Lands End to John O'Grouts would be quite a quest if he is starting in September. The weather here has been lousy and I have just had a 3 week sample of it and am longing to get back to Australia for some springtime running.
    I wish him the best of luck as I think he will need it.

    Wow that's incredible. 30 miles a day for a whole month. I'd need a week or two off to recover after the first 30 mile day!
