The Swim Run Jersey Sprint is a demanding physical event, taking well trained athletes anywhere from 3 to 5 hours to complete. The Full version is another level. We recommend those new to the swim run consider competing as part of a team and/or choosing either the Experience or Sprint distances. In person registration will be on Friday 2 September 2022 and unless otherwise agreed, a mandatory briefing will be held remotely on the same evening. All ages are as at the day of the event. Jersey Tri Club members are entitled to a discount, please contact Vaughan Robinson for more details.
All Participants MUST have the following:
Suitable footwear, a whistle, race bib (provided at registration) and swim cap (provided at registration)
All Participants on the Full and Sprint distances MUST have the following:
A wetsuit suitable for cold water swimming and a reusable cup, flask or bottle.
All Participants competing as an individual MUST have the following:
An inflated and brightly coloured tow float.
Participants on the Experience distance MAY participate in a trisuit (or similar) but we recommend a wetsuit.
Goggles are optional but recommended.
Participants MAY use the following:
Paddles, pull buoy, fins, tow line and any nutrition and hydration they are prepared to carry with them. Fins must not extend more than 15cm beyond the toes and any float may not be larger than 100cm by 60cm. No powered propulsion devices are allowed. No outside assistance is allowed.
Swim Run Jersey is an event over three distances:
Experience 4km, "under an hour" (Gorey to St Catherines): three runs (2.8km), two swims (1.6km)

You can participate as an individual or as a team of two*. You will swim in your shoes and run in your wetsuit along Jersey's stunning coastline.
*All Experience course athletes enter as an individual though they can unofficially pair up as a team of two on the day if they wish. All Full entries must be as a team.
