WE’RE just waiting for the first copies of our latest Mountain Media book to arrive from the printers.
Some of you may recall that last winter a young doctor from Edinburgh, Andrew Murray, ran from John O’Groats in northern Scotland to Morocco. We published the DVD of the excellent BBC television programme earlier this year.
Andrew has written account of that run – Scotland2Sahara – and the book, RUNNING BEYOND LIMITS – The Adventures of an Ultra Marathon Runner, is the result.
Andrew began running in 2005 when he realised it might be a good way to see the world. Since then he has won numerous endurance races in all corners of the world, including the jungle, the Arctic, the Sahara and in Outer Mongolia. He has also competed in the Everest Marathin in Nepal.
As an expedition/event doctor Andrew has worked on six continents and the geographic North Pole where he has been able to study the effects of extreme conditions on some of the toughest athletes in the world.
RUNNING BEYOND LIMITS is the story of the remarkable Scotland to Sahara run, interwoven between tales from some of the most extreme running events imaginable. The Foreword has been kindly written by Sir Ranulph Fiennes.
We’re currently taking pre-orders for the book. Check it out in our sister website, Mountain Media.
