The record currently stands at 35 day and 27 minutes. Emma's goal will to be to complete the run in 21 days. That means running 100km every day!
Emma planned to do this run four years ago before struggling with a lower leg injury. The injury took many years to resolve and it was an extremely challenging time for her, but she is now back to running and stronger than ever ! This challenge will push Emma to the absolute limit physically and mentally.
Making sure that everything runs smoothly, Emma will have an epic support team with her. They'll be travelling in camper-van which will also become Emma's home for the three weeks.
