Doc Andrew Murray looks ahead to 2014

There’s talk of the Scottish pistes opening early up there in the Glens after a steady pasting of snow in recent weeks. Winter has truly arrived. For some, that means dusting off the skis and salopettes while, for others, it means grabbing the 13.5 tog duvet from the loft, buying a Radio Times and battening down the hatches.

Q&A with Merrell Pack Leader Andrew Murray

Where did the idea of the 7 ultramarathons come from - was it yours?
I was out racing in the Ice Marathon in Antarctica anyway- I’m always keen to max out any trip and thought I’d take the long way home, seeing some of the most epic places on earth. However as a doctor we get pretty short holidays so I had to do the 7 ultra marathons in a week

You obviously do long distance events regularly, did you have to change your training much in preparation?

I ran a maximum of 185 miles per week, for a fortnight. I also deliberately did a few night runs to prepare me for the jet lag. The severity of the weather was difficult to prepare for. Even Aberdeen is no match for Antarctica temperature wise
