The new film Run To The Source, which charts the journey of Patagonia ambassador Martin Johnson on his fastest known-time for the Thames River Trail is out on YouTube tomorrow.

The documentary from Patagonia follows Johnson on the 184 miles from the Thames Barrier in south east London to the source of the river in the Cotswolds, on 25 May, the anniversary of the murder of George Floyd.

As a Black British man, he tackles with the gruelling physical challenge, as well as contemplating the history of Black people in his country, running the route symbolic of empowering and enabling people from ethnically diverse backgrounds living in cities to explore the outdoors and wild places.
