Best Foot Forward


In April 2021, Colette set off from Lizard Point in Cornwall, England's southern-most tip, with the aim of running to Scotland's most north-westerly corner, Cape Wrath Lighthouse. A distance of one-thousand miles.

Her plan was to keep to footpaths and trails, as far as possible, and complete an average of 20 miles a day with a rest day once a week. Alongside her husband who provided logistical support, Colette's support team included friends and family and a newly purchased campervan.

This book not only tracks her progress but gives the reader a personal insight into the challenges she faced - and overcame - and the compromises made in order to complete her goal. Colette also shares with us the sights, sounds and feelings she experienced on this epic undertaking and the realisation, on arriving at Cape Wrath Lighthouse, that she has completed the journey of a lifetime that will stay with her forever.
