The Jersey Triathlon is the most Southerly triathlon of the British Isles and is one of the most exciting, challenging and picturesque courses in Britain.
This popular event still remains strong on its focus message of fun, friendship and helping one another to achieve personal goals. Intense but accessible, the Accuro Jersey Triathlon operates four different race formats that provide fast and thrilling races that spectators love to get involved with. The course s set against the beautiful backdrop of Jersey and we continue to welcome international athletes to take up the challenge and experience our island.
