Before you enter 26 June - Helier's 6km or 10km Seymour Sprint

To make a donation only - thank you very much - please scroll down past the ticket options.

PLEASE NOTE: Online registration only. There will be NO option to enter to run on the day of the actual event.

Registration cut-off: 6pm, Friday 25 June.

Welcome to the sign-up page for the Seymour Sprint - the unique race across Jersey's Ramsar site. Bring trainers to get wet, and a sense of fun, and enjoy our race against the tide out to the iconic Seymour Tower (and back again)!

The 10km Seymour Sprint run takes place along Jersey’s South-East coast, out to the historic Seymour Tower and back to the start, racing the tide across this beautiful Ramsar site. This is a 10km trail run across the inter-tidal zone to Seymour Tower, so be prepared to get wet and run over sandy and rocky surfaces (more info below).

The 6km Seymour Six is from Long Beach to Seymour Slip ONLY (not out the Tower) and back.

A limited number of race t-shirts will be available on the day for £12.50, cash or contactless payment.

Unfortunately, due to the timing challenges with beating the tide, entrants must be over 18 only. 

Check-in from 1:00pm
Safety Briefing: 1:45 pm prompt

Start time:  2:00 pm

Seymour Tower Cut Off (5km): 2:45 pm


There will be NO registration on the day and, for safety reasons, a maximum of 100 runners permitted.

We are being eco-friendly with our race: 

  • Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are unable to provide a water station - please ensure you bring sufficient water with you. 

  • The run takes place over part of the Jersey Ramsar site - whilst the run is relatively short, any waste (empty gel packs, water bottles etc) MUST be carried with you. Rubbish bags will be available at Long Beach car park. 

To minimise risk we have chosen not to provide refreshments. Instead, hot/cold drinks and food can be bought from Rhona's just down the beach.

If anyone is displaying Covid symptoms - please don't join us! 

Please OPT IN to keep up to date with how YOU have made a difference and how Philip's Footprints use your donations - we promise not to overload your inbox.

We would be very thankful if you wanted to raise sponsorship/donations and you can set up your own fundraising page via Race Nation. If you would like to make an additional donation on the day we can take cash or contactless donations via card machine. 

Please note re 10km Run -

The run takes place over beach and inter-tidal terrain and shoes and clothing will be exposed to sea water and parts of the course may be under water (approximately knee-height, depending on the height of your knees). You are expected to use common sense, follow the marshalled route and avoid running over rocky outcrops and through deeper water. 

This event will be physically challenging - you will be running 10km across uneven coastal/ inter-tidal terrain, through the gulleys. Due to the risk of tidal cut-off, there is a time limit for reaching the turn-around point (45mins - 5km).  You MUST be able to run the 10km distance within the 90 minute time set. That works out at 8 min/km or 12.5min/mile (which is a comfortable jog for most). You are expected to be in good health and not have any medical conditions which might prevent you doing that.

In the event of poor weather making the event unsafe, Philip's Footprints reserves the right to postpone or cancel the event.
