Run Island.
4 Islands in 14 days…

On 30 September, Amy will be heading over to the Balearic Islands to run both cross-country and the coastlines of all four islands. Amy will be covering the distance on foot and will travel from island to island by ferry and plane.

The adventure will begin on the beautiful island of Formentera, the smallest island.

Amy will run from top to bottom in one day, before she heads over to Ibiza by ferry.

Ibiza will be the second longest run, where Amy will be running around the island’s coastline over a four-day period.

She will then be getting a boat from Ibiza to Palma, Mallorca, where she’ll be running cross-country from one side of the island to the other, finishing in Alcudia.

Finally, from Alcudia, Amy will then travel to Menorca where she will take on the final and longest leg, running around the island over six days.

“This challenge tested both my mental and physical capability to the ultimate limit! It was the hardest thing I have ever …and will ever do. I can’t quite believe I’ve actually done it… anything is possible and I believe that now more than ever. Thank you for everybody’s support, I could not have got through this without you.”
