Barefoot run across UK passes through Gloucestershire

Gloucestershire based Anna McNuff is running across the country barefoot.

McNuff is in the process of running 100 marathons around the UK, and this weekend she was in Gloucester.

On Saturday, the Girlguiding ambassador, ran from Tewkesbury Abbey to the Gloucester Docks, with a home crowd welcome.

On Monday, McNuff set off from Gloucester at lunch-time on the way to Wotton-under-Edge.

The run, which she calls ‘Barefoot Britain’, covers 2,620 miles and is set to finish in London in November, five months after setting off from the Shetland Islands.

Anna’s partner, ‘Adventureman’ Jamie McDonald hit the national headlines earlier this year when he broke the Guinness World Record for the greatest distance covered in seven days on a treadmill
