Jersey Round Island Challenge 2017
We are pleased to announce that the second Jersey Round Island Challenge will take place on Saturday 12 August 2017.
In 2016 approximately 150 people took on the inaugural 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. In 2016 participants helped us raise an unbelievable £25,000 for the charity.
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.
We are grateful to the below clubs who are partners for the event:
- Jersey Long Distance Swimming Club (JLDSC)
- Jersey Paddle Club
- Jersey Rowing Club
- Jersey Canoe Club
