Michael Murray

Mike loves anything that involves being in the mountains, from hiking and trail running to climbing and skiing. He has completed some of the world’s most notorious ultra-distance races including the Spine and the Dragon’s Back Race and in 2018 he planned and completed a continuous 550-mile walk across all 190 mountains of Wales. He has extensive mountaineering and climbing experience both in the UK and abroad with highlights including organising and undertaking an expedition to Elbrus in Russia (Europe’s highest mountain) and summiting numerous 4000m peak ascents in the Alps.
After spending 12 years working as an actuary in London and using all his free time to escape to the mountains, he decided it was time to change his career to work in the outdoors so he can share his passion and pass on his knowledge to others.
Mike is a qualified Summer Mountain Leader, Navigation Tutor, Nordic Walking Instructor and Leader in Running Fitness. He is currently working towards his Winter Mountain Leader, International Mountain Leader and Rock Climbing Instructor qualifications.
