Doc Andrew Murray
I’m a doctor, runner, speaker and author.
The summer of 2014 will be pretty hectic. On the 19th July, Donnie Campbell and myself will try to run the 10 highest mountains in the UK in a day. We will support the amazing Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH) during this challenge, more details via my blogs!
I’ll also be working at the Commonwealth Games, the Ryder Cup, the Tour de France and the likes, whilst I’ve won a few races in some of the world’s most spectacular locations, from the North Pole, the Jungle, the Himalaya, and have completed a 2,659 mile run from far North Scotland to the Sahara desert as well as running 7 ultra marathons on 7 continents on 7 consecutive days as well as representing Scotland in international competition.
As a Sports and Exercise Medicine doctor, I’ve worked at the Olympics, for various professional sports teams and on tours and expeditions worldwide. I worked for the Scottish Government as their Physical Activity Champion promoting exercise for health. Becoming and staying physically active is one of the best things you can do for your health. 30 minutes of walking (or any exercise) is better than any preventative medicine, and it’s safe. 60 minutes physical activity a day is the single best present you can give a child.
I needed a good kick up the backside from a mate to get active again after university, and urge everyone to GET ACTIVE today, and spread the word.
Updates from various capers, health promotion stuff and injury advices will appear in my blog and the site content will be updated.
Please take the time to check out my charities. Thanks to you all, over £150k has been raised through various runs for 3 amazing causes.
My first book “Running Beyond Limits” is available via Amazon / the usual bookstores.
