“You’re way more capable than you think you are”

Having recently completed Project282 – climbing all 282 Scottish Munros in a solo, self-supported, continuous round – adventure athlete Emily Scott is an on a new mission: to make adventure accessible for all

Running uphill? I’m so bad at it!” laughs Emily Scott. “I enjoy hiking uphill and I can go quite quickly. But when I try to run, I just feel like I’m dying.”

True as this might be, we suspect she’s being somewhat modest. The 31-year-old adventure athlete is not talking about a gentle incline in a local park. The hills she refers to happen to be Munros – Scottish mountains over 3,000ft in height. There are 282 of them and last summer Emily climbed them all. In one continuous round. Solo. Self-supported. And self-propelled. So, considering she was carrying all her kit and food, and having cycled, canoed or paddleboarded to reach each one, we can forgive her for not going hell for leather up the side of mountains.

About Women’s Running

We’ve taken a running jump into spring with our March issue, which is packed with inspirational ideas on how to go further, get fitter and run faster now that the worst of the cold weather is behind us. We’ve been out on the trails discovering new ways we can inject a bit of wild into our running: from fastpacking to swimruns there are plenty of ways to embrace your inner child and find new ways to love our beloved running. And if that wan’t enough to inspire you to leave the tarmac behind, read our interview with Emily Scott: last summer she climbed 282 Munros (that’s a mountain to the non-Scottish among you) unsupported, in one continuous round. And she’s on the lookout for her next adventure! We’ve also included the Big One: your training guide to getting round a marathon in tip top shape – whether it’s your first marathon, or simply your latest stab at a PB, we’ve got the plan to give you a strong finish. Our extended workout this issue focuses on arms: strong arms are vital for a strong stride, so we’re working on getting rock-hard triceps and biceps to pump our legs. And while we know that running is good for ourselves, did you know you could help others by putting one foot in front of the other? We investigate England Athletic’s Mental Health Champions campaign to support good mental wellbeing through running, and find out how we can get involved at a local level.
