Publisher's Summary

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.

One Crazy Pink Haired Woman!

As with her other books, Anna immediately engages, excites and enthrals with her cheerful insanity. Always upbeat in the face of bizarre obstacles and eye watering challenges. I just love the way she sees things, animating toes and many other objects with her very funny internal dialogue. A wonderful listen, assured to lift your spirits and inspire. 10/10 ⭐

absolutely loved it

I really enjoyed listening to this book, I was almost sad that it ended, and now I'm tempted to buy the actual book. it was lighthearted yet was nice to hear that she was willing to tell us about the sad times, the frustrations, and the milestone. Thank you, Anna.

Ever relatable and totally inspiring

Anna is awesomely bonkers. I chose this book straight after listening to her shorter book Bedtime Adventure Stories for Adults.
I remember seeing bits of barefoot Britain via Anna’s Instagram and thinking how incredible a challenge she’d taken on.
Her book kept me riveted over the past two weeks, I’ve devoured every last bit like a slab of chocolate cake after a long adventure run.
If you like listening to adventures, and feeling like you’re really a part of the journey, this book will be for you.
