    #BarefootBritain


    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 https://www.annamcnuff.com/barefootbritain/#calendar and it'll take you through to the subscription details. Pop your name into the stages that you want to join her for and I'll be in touch a bit closer to the time with the info that you'll need. If running’s a no-go, simply following Anna's live tracker (https://z6z.co/barefoot) and sharing her progress on social media is an enormous support and Anna appreciates it more than you know.

    We're also looking for hosts to very generously give Anna a bed and feed for the night and transport her kit. If any of your members are interested in supporting in this way then please let me know (via barefoot@annamcnuff.com) and I can cross check against the gaps that we've got.

    Thanks again for the support!”

    So there you have it. Let’s get out there and do our best for a fantastic ambassador for our sport of barefoot running!

    Not that this belongs in this thread, but one reference from this site lead to another and I found yet another barefoot Brit, a guy this time, planning to run in September from one end to the other of Britain (although it doesn't sound like the same route at all), so I just want to know what's gotten into our British colleague's? Are they trying to break free of the limited terrain of their island? Anyway, good luck in all these barefoot islanders' struggles to surpass their limitations! So this is what I saw about this guy Tony Riddle:
