Jersey Round Island Challenge

We are very excited to announce that the fourth Jersey Round Island Challenge will be taking place on Saturday 31 August 2019.

In 2018, over 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!

This epic challenge raises 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.
