Barefoot Aleks

Ultra Runner and barefoot specialist

Aleks Kashefi is a British adventurer who first hit the headlines when he completed an astonishing 38-day, 1162-mile run from Lands End to John OGroats  800 miles of which he did barefoot.

A year later, Aleks found himself at the most Northern point of mainland Europe and after 6 months of grueling winter weather, became the first person to have run the full length of Europe, from Nodkapp to Tarifa, a transcontinental epic he completed entirely self-supported.
