Well howdy do – I’m Anna, a British born adventurer, motivational speaker, influencer and author. I was recently named by Condé Nast Traveller as one of the 50 most influential travellers of our time, and by the the Guardian as one of the top modern female adventurers . I am also proud to be the UK Ambassador for Girl Guiding, and the co-founder of Adventure Queens; the UK’s fastest growing women’s adventure community.
I’m best known for my recent attempt to run the distance of 100 marathons through Great Britain, in my bare feet.
I get my kicks by travelling the world on long, human powered journeys, and in sharing those journeys with others. When not running up mountains or sleeping in the wild, I encourage others to grab on to life (non-scientific term), and speak and write about the importance of adopting a growth mindset (scientific term), in everything we do. I believe that there’s more strength and magic in each of us than we will ever know – adventure is my personal way of unlocking that.
