Product Description

This was the challenge of a lifetime for Edinburgh doctor and ultra-marathon runner Andrew Murray. With minimal support, and in the middle of winter, he planned to run an ultra marathon every day, from the tip of Scotland to the Sahara desert. If successful he would create a new ultra-marathon running record. The distance from John O'Groats to Merzouga in Morocco is 2,659 miles and Andrew planned to complete the distance in 85 days, with no rest days! (In the end he completed the distance in 78 days.) That's the equivalent of 100 marathons run end to end - and not a single day off to recover. As a medic, Andrew knew exactly what that would do to his body and it wasn't good news. Attempting to cram in a staggering 8000 calories every day is extremely difficult and doesn't stop the body from beginning to break down. The constant pounding on hard roads and pavements would inevitably take its toll on muscles and joints, so why do it?

One man's attempt to push the limit of ultra marathon running. This was the challenge of a lifetime for Edinburgh doctor and ultra-marathon runner Andrew Murray.

If successful he would create a new ultra-marathon running record - the equivalent of 100 marathons run end to end - and not a single day off to recover.

This is an absorbing account of the lead up and then execution of an amazing run by a solo runner who is very modest but extremley determined. You get to meet some of his friend and family as they help him out along the way and you get the strong impression he really wanted to help the people in Africa h set out to help and meet in his fund raising

What a run, i hav done a few mad events like MDS and D2W but this was awesome and at times comical as he looks at a map on the ferry to figure out the best route mid race..organised but not too organised, I like it

Well done Mr Murray
