Jersey to host new swimrun competition
The Channel Island of Jersey is to a host a 54km endurance swimrun race on September 24. Organised by Breca, teams of two will race around the beautiful coastline, taking in 19 legs, including 6km of open-water swimming and 48km of running with an ascent of 1,400 metres.
It starts in the shadow of Mont Orgueil castle and sights along the route include spectacular clifftops, gentle beaches, Neolithic tombs, round towers, Martello forts and German WW2 fortifications.
Breca Jersey will have nine incredible ocean swims across the island’s iconic bays, and teams will be racing counter-clockwise around the island in a battle against Jersey’s relentless 40ft tides.
