Hi fellow adventurers :), my name is Nadine. I am about to set out on a 1000mile run across the UK in barefoot shoes. It's not the usual 'Land's end to John'O'Groats route. No!!! Together with my team here in London we have created a route that will lead us through the 10 largest National Parks, starting with the Southdowns and finishing with the Cairngorms in Scotland. The journey will take 7 weeks teaming up with running groups, endurance athletes, fell barefoot runners along the way and aim to highlight the benefits of (barefoot) running, being active and help people discover that the next big adventure could be right on their doorstep! I will be documenting the challenge via video and post on my website (www.nadinehorn.com) and as first female ambassador of EOCA raise funds along the way. So far we have partnered up with Ordnance Survey, Vivobarefoot Vivobarefoot Trainingsclinic and Smartwool to provide PR and equipment. --- if you are available for the whole 7-weeks great, if you can only do from a week onward, great as well. Preferably longer though to grow as a team. Contact me under: nadine@nadinehorn.com P.S We have also launched our first crowd funding campaign to get the budget for petrol etc in place, check it out, take part and spread the word:http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/run-uk-1000miles-barefoot/x/124162
