We’ve all thought about taking our life in a new direction at some point. Seek out adventure, try new things and push our physical and mental strengths to the limit. Well, get ready to feel inspired, because that’s exactly what Anna McNuff did.
She’s done it all, marathons, Ironman’s, competitions, sportives, public speaking and mega challenges that would break most people.
In 2013, Anna set off on her first mega challenge, a solo cycle through all 50 states in the US. Over the 7 month challenge, Anna’s 11,000 mile journey took her through beautiful landscapes and bustling cities, whilst stopping off at the local schools to speak with young budding adventurers.
Feeling energised and inspired to do more, Anna set herself the mammoth challenge of running along the Te Araroa trail in New Zealand last year. Nearly 2,000 miles of road, forest, mountain and snow with just herself and her pack of worldly possessions.
Being passionate about the outdoors, Anna speaks at schools and public functions to encourage and promote individuals to find their own adventure and enjoy the world we have available to us.
