Students at St Mary's and St Michael's in Guernsey are walking the equivalent distance to Gibraltar.
It is part of the Daily Mile project where children walk or run one mile a day.
In the lead up to the Island Games this July, the cumulative miles walked by each school will add up to the distance to the Games, which is about 3,500 miles.
The idea is to get children active and excited about the Island Games.
Eleven schools will take part in the event from a number of islands.
Teams from 24 islands will head to Gibraltar for the NatWest international Island Games where they will compete in 12 sports.
Guernsey's Megan Chapple was at the launch of the Daily Mile which is in conjunction with the Island Games.
