By Nicholas Butter


In the spring of 2021 as the UK's latest pandemic lockdowns were lifted Nick Butter set out from the Eden Project to become the fastest person to cover ever mile of Britain's mainland coastline on foot. Battling the most extreme winds Britain had seen in 100 years days of torrential rain and the unrelenting hills of Western Scotland and Cornwall Nick suffered two broken bones and countless injuries whilst taking on two marathons a day every day for 100 days. Covering an extraordinary 5250 miles running for over 12 hours a day struggling to take in the 8000 daily calories required to fuel his body Nick battled sleep deprivation and extreme weight loss as he pushed his body and mind to their limit. Supported by close friends and family Nick experienced spiralling lows and euphoric highs. As he traversed footpaths country lanes and busy A roads he passed through over two thousand coastal communities buoyed along by supporters cheering from windows balconies passing cars and pavements by school children and fellow runners and by the stunning sights and sounds of the British coast. Run Britain is Nick's account of his extraordinary adventure.
