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.
The event rebranded and relocated to the Waterfront in St Helier in 2013 and having received very positive feedback from local triathletes, organisers continued to develop the course and event. In 2014 the Jersey Triathlon saw a significant increase in people participating, as the event became more established as big sporting spectacle for the Island and our visiting triathletes. In 2015 the course was selected to host the Island Games event in Jersey and the same course was used for the 2016 Jersey Triathlon event.
The Jersey Triathlon now operates with four different race categories, thus offering a distance for all levels of ability to participate. The largest of the races remains the 'Olympic' distance, but the event also has 'Super Sprint distance and a 'Jersey Sprint' distance, which is a variation on the normal Sprint distance! The course consists of a 750m swim in front of the iconic Elizabeth Castle, then a challenging one-lap 40km bike course and finishing with a 5km run around Jersey's Waterfront and Elizabeth Marina. The event also operates a Junior Triathlon on the same day as the adult races.
The Swim Course
Two laps (750m each) with an Australian exit after lap one, and takes place in open water in front of the iconic Elizabeth Castle.
The Bike Course
Challenging one-lap (40km) bike course around the west of the island, which includes a few climbs and many long, flat sections. The race will be non-drafting.
The Run Course
Technical four lap (2.5km each) run around Jersey's Waterftont and Elizabeth Marina. Runners will also get a spectacular close of view of Elizabeth Castle, as they run out along the elevated Marina wall.
