Intrepid Anna to conquer New Zealand

She’s our newest Ambassador and globe-trotter Anna McNuff doesn’t hang about when it comes to flying the flag for Crewroom. Days after she stepped into the role helping spread the word about Britain’s favourite sportskit brand, Anna was off – to New Zealand.

No, not for a beach holiday – but to run it. Yes, the whole length of it.

Amazing Anna is spending the next five months running the 2,000 miles across NZ, following the Te Araroa Trail. She’ll run through forests, over mountain ranges, across rivers and along beaches. From the southernmost point of the South Island, to Cape Reigna in the very north.

She’s aiming to cover 15 to 20 miles per day. That’s an awesome challenge and she’ll be running solo, carrying all her camping gear and equipment on her back.

“I’m encouraging anyone and everyone to run with me in and out of towns if they can, and have me come and speak to the kids in their communities as I pass through,” says Anna on her popular blog, Mischief with McNuff (All aboard the train to Adventuretown), which we urge you to check out.

Crewroom is proud to be supporting Anna on her adventure and she’ll be wearing our kit along the way. Anna adds: “The most important part of the trip is to make the time to go into schools. This journey isn’t about records or speeds, it’s about the people and the places. And people and places demand time.”

There are lots of ways YOU can support Anna, like by telling the world about her on social media; in New Zealand, you can invite Anna to a school or local community group, you can follow Anna on Twitter or Facebook – and embrace the #AnnaRuNZ hashtag. Why not drop Anna a line here?

And we also promise to keep you updated on Anna’s progress in the months ahead.
