Location: The Channel Islands
Registration deadline: Sold Out

Breca Jersey is the Channel Islands' first swimrun race around the stunning coastline of Jersey.

The courses have incredible ocean swims across the island's iconic bays. Teams will race counter-clockwise around the island in a battle against Jersey's relentless 40ft tides. Being some of the highest in the world, the tides present an ever-changing course and a unique challenge in the world of swimrun. Teamwork will be essential for pairs to overcome these swirling ocean waters and technical rocky transitions.
