Hello. I’m Anna, an adventurer, speaker and mischief-maker. I get my kicks from exploring the world through long human-powered journeys. On a mission to find the limit of my own potential, I’m hoping to help you unlock yours too. Let’s dance.
WEM speaks to a fellow maverick adventurer Anna McNuff
Anna, a British born adventurer, motivational speaker, influencer and author. She was recently named by Condé Nast Traveller as one of the 50 most influential travellers of our time, and by 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.
She's best known for her recent attempt to run the distance of 100 marathons through Great Britain, in my bare feet.
Anna gets her 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, she encourages 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. She believes that there’s more strength and magic in each of us than we will ever know – adventure is her personal way of unlocking that.
