JERSEY TRIATHLON 2014
The Jersey Triathlon is the most Southerly triathlon of the British Isles and is one of the most exciting, challenging and picturesque courses in Britain.
In 2013 the event had a make over and relocated the core race areas to the waterfront in St Helier, as it commenced its preparations for the hosting the Jersey 2015 Island Games triathlon event.
It is planned that the 2014 event will be an official Island Games Test Event and the Jersey squad will also use this race as a qualifying / selection race for their team as well as a warm up for the Commonwealth Games in 2014.
