Are you part of it?
Join the Musculoskeletal Elves Team (on the 5×50 registration website #TheMSK_Elf). By running, walking, cycling 5k a day for the 7 days from 23rd to 29th November the organisers aim to cover the equivalent distance of 5 times round the world. It’s not aimed at the fit – it’s about getting everyone involved. Visit the 5×50 website for full information and to join the challenge.
Some people are really taking this seriously. A colleague of the Musculoskeletal Elf Doc Andrew Murray is running 7 Ultra Marathons on all 7 continents within 7 days this week. His destinations will be Antarctica, Patagonia, Atlanta-USA, London, the Pyramids of Egypt, Dubai and finishing his incredible journey at the Sydney Opera House, Australia. He’s doing this to raise awareness of the benefits of exercise (he now works for the Scottish Government on this) and also for The Scottish Association for Mental Health.
Andrew’s route is here. For a bit of a laugh here is a trailer for some TV he’s making about the trip. He massively appreciates the support he’s had for his previous challenges. If you know anyone- or are interested in supporting Andrew this would be MASSIVELY appreciated in 2 ways
