If you think the idea of cycling from Land’s End to John O’ Groats is daunting then how about running the distance.
Not tough enough for you?
Okay, how about doing it bare foot?
That is exactly what Aleks Kashefi, 37, from Buxton, Derbyshire has achieved, completing the journey on 3rd September.
Mr Kashefi, who only took up running three years ago, decided to run bare foot, “To add a bit of interest and to make it more of a challenge.”
As much of the route as possible was run off road, which you would have thought would make the distance shorter, being able to cut across country but Mr Kashefi covered a total of 1,160-miles on the route he took, a chunk more than the average cycle route of about 900-950 miles.
