Jersey Round Island Challenge
Saturday 14th July 2018
Jersey Round Island Challenge
The third Jersey Round Island Challenge will take place on Saturday 14th of July 2018.
In 2017 approximately 200 people took on the adventure challenge and either Swam, Canoe/Kayaked, Rowed, SUP’ed or Ran around the stunning Island of Jersey. In doing so they not only took on a massive challenge but also took on one of the highest tidal ranges in the world!
So impressive is the challenge that Red Bull UK listed the event as one of the top 11 extreme UK fitness challenges in 2016.
The purpose of this exciting endurance event is to raise awareness and valuable funds for the Grace Crocker Family Support Foundation, a local charity that supports families in Jersey with sick children needing treatment in the UK. To date participants helped us raise an unbelievable £45,000 for the charity.
The 2017 route map is shown below. The 2018 map will be available soon.
All categories complete the achievement of circum navigating the island, whether as a team or solo. Each race category is managed by a relevant local club, who provides essential support, training and safety guidelines. For the sake of safety, every entrant must first demonstrate that they are fit and capable to participate in this endurance event. Sign off for participation will come from an experienced Jersey club member.
