Sporting Events

Adventurous, active and awash with individual, unique experiences

An island of unlimited opportunities where the unique combination of land, coast, beach and sea provide immersive event experiences and outstanding spectator opportunities.

Start with sandy beaches washed by the one of the greatest tidal ranges in the world, add a landscape of steep climbs, sand dunes and coastal footpaths. Throw in a network of green lanes and some outstanding surf breaks, and you get Jersey – a breath-taking backdrop for almost any sporting event.

In 2017, 50 of the world’s best triathletes, including the UK’s Jonny Brownlee, took part in the adrenalin filled Super League Triathlon. Jersey’s Elizabeth Marina provided a dramatic backdrop and a fan-friendly course for this brutal, tactical and explosive racing format.

Jersey has become a firm favourite in the Breca SwimRun. A true test of strength and endurance against the open water and the rugged conditions of the trail. Jersey provided incredible ocean swims across iconic bays with relentless 40ft tides coupled with technically challenging rocky transitions.

With a number of mass participation sporting events held on the island from the Jersey Marathon to the Jersey Triathlon, the island offers a range of fantastic sporting event opportunities.
