Martin Johnson attempts to set a new FKT on the 184-mile Thames River Trail. It's an impressive athletic pursuit, but also a chance to contemplate the entangled history of Black British people and the river. It's a journey of self-discovery, punctuated by discovery and joy. Ultimately it's an experience Martin hopes will inspire many more people of colour to get out beyond the city and run.
