From BNC:

He had to have travelled the better part of five miles cross country and another two from the edge of town in order to reach the Cathedral.

Wainwright's classic 190 mile cross country walk from St Bees Head to Robin Hood's Bay.

Most of the hits are about sports (running, skiing, riding).
