Exploring the world, one adventure at a time.

Hello. I’m Anna, an adventurer, speaker and mischief maker. I get my kicks from exploring the world through long human powered (and slightly bonkers) journeys. On a mission to find the limit of my own potential, I’m hoping to help you unlock yours too. There are trails to be run, mountains to climb, dreams to chase and fears to face down. Let’s dance.


Barefoot Britain 

This summer, I’ll be running the distance of 100 marathons, through the UK – from the Shetland Islands to London. And if that’s not bonkers enough… I’ll be running completely barefoot, and talking to Girl Guides along the way about taking on challenges that they believe are just beyond their reach.


Find out more about the route, and why I’m doing this.

My Adventures

I’ve journeyed over 20,000 miles across this precious planet by foot, bike and even dabbled a little bit on the water too. Have a read about each adventure and get ready to transport yourself to far flung lands with tales of dering do.

It’s time for a NEW ADVENTURE!! #BarefootBritain

Holy monkey beans Facebookers, this never gets any easier and my fingers are shaky-jakey as I type, but after almost 18 months of prep I am VERY excited to tell y’all that... starting on June 2nd this year, I’ll be setting off to run 2,620 miles (100 marathons) through Britain… barefoot.

Did you just choke on your morning cuppa? I’m not surprised. Have a sit down and read on.


On the five month run from The Sheltand Islands to London, I’ll weave my way along rugged coastlines, through small villages, across moors, along beaches, over farmland and even pitter patter down the odd picturesque A-road too. Mmm. Lovely.

I’ll also be passing through some of the country’s biggest cities, and a fair ole wodge of suburbia. I’ll be inviting you to run with me (more on that soon), exploring the trails of our national parks, meeting some truly amazing Britsh people and stopping for many, many cups of tea and hugs along the way.


At the core of this journey are the young women of Britain. As a proud Girlguiding ambassador, I’ll be visiting as many Rainbow, Brownie and Guiding units as possible, to share tales of adventure and let those girls know that there is more magic in them than they will ever know 🦄✨ (See the notes below on how to arrange a visit if you’re on route)

Why am I doing it barefoot??

Well. When I stand in front of those young women - our future leaders, scientists, adventurers, athletes, politicians, artists… I’m going to be encouraging them to reach for things that are just beyond what they believe they are capable of. And if I’m asking them to do that, then I have to be on that journey too. Thems the rules.

I could do the run in trainers, but trying to do it in bare feet takes the challenge up a notch (or five). So bare feet it is. Plus, I do love a barefoot wander... 🦶🏻💕

So here we go again, ruddy marvellous adventure army. Only this time we’re playing at home rather than away. 🇬🇧🙌🏻 I have a feeling this will be one heck of a trip and I can’t wait to share it with you all. The highs, the lows, and all the glorious messy bits in between.

Right now, I am equal parts excited and terrified. And when excitement and fear collide there can be only one outcome:

So check out the info below, and if your finger feels so inclined, I’d love it if you could hit share on this post.

Let's light the country up, and hopefully I'll get to see a fair few of you along the way too?? WOOOT!
