Briefing Notes

The Jersey Cancer Relief Half Marathon in association with JSAC starts on the athletics track near to the Clubhouse at 9:00 am. Runners do a single lap clockwise at the start and another one to finish at similar point to start line about 40 metres from Clubhouse at the 200 metre mark. 

Generally we advise runners not to push too hard from Longueville Manor to Hougue Bie as the rest of the course is more “accommodating”.

Your details must to be added on the rear of your race number in case of emergency.  The number should be clearly visible on your front especially as we will have manual timekeepers as backup for the chip timing.

Parking is limited so please share cars wherever possible. When arriving at FB Fields please park via the Plat Douet Road WESTERN entrance  to the grassed pitches.  No parking is permitted at the FB Fields main car park as this is reserved for people who attend the Church & Table Tennis.  Parking will also be available on the tarmac netball pitches which can be accessed from Plat Douet road and then through the estate .

Please arrive at least 30 minutes before the 9:00 am start. The grassed field in front of the Jersey Sport pavilion is the recommended area for warm up. Toilets are found adjacent to pavilion, in the Clubhouse and at the Netball block near the stand on Far Side.

To take part in the half marathon participants must be aged 17 or over on race day.

The Course map is attached. Mile markers will be set out on the course. After the initial 1.25 miles the roads are open to traffic and you are directed to stay on the left hand side. The course is measured based on open roads with runners keeping to the left hand side (of road). You may be disqualified if you cut the course by running beyond the middle road markings. 

PLEASE NOTE RUNNERS MAY ONLY USE BONE-CONDUCTION LISTENING DEVICES as all other listening devices, which reduce ability to hear external noise, add significantly to the risk of a runner not being aware of other runners and Traffic on the route. 

It is not normal for runners to use pavements in Road Races of this kind but in exception on the coast road some runners may feel more comfortable on the pavement when traffic is busy. Please remember to respectfully share the pavement if there are pedestrians. 

Results will be scrutinized and signed off to be published as soon as practicable via a link to the JSAC website, that will be emailed out to all entrants and through a post on JSAC Facebook page.

Information regarding the presentation of awards for runners in the respective age categories will be available closer to the event date. 

Any offers of help on the day, for marshalling, handing out water, or with set up would be gratefully received, please sign up on this event using the "Volunteer Sign up" ticket. If you have any questions, please reach out to Hannah at info@jerseyspartan.com.

Jersey Cancer Relief

Jersey Cancer Relief came into being in 1968, initially as the Jersey branch of the national campaign, when it was found that some cancer patients and their families were finding it difficult to cope financially because of their illness.

It was incorporated as a Jersey charity in November 1973. Since then, due to generous donations and our own fundraising efforts, it has been possible to offer assistance to many Islanders.
