JERSEY TRIATHLON 2015
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 also added a shorter Super Sprint race to the day as well as team relay option on the Olympic course.
In 2015 the Jersey Triathlon will follow the same course as 2014, meaning that it will be identical to the course being used on the Island Games Event in June 2015.
The Course Overview (Olympic)
The Swim Course, consists of two laps (750m) with an Australian exit after lap one, and takes place in open water in front of the iconic Elizabeth Castle.
The Bike Course is a challenging one-lap (40km) bike course around the west of the island, which includes a few climbs and many long, flat sections. The race will be non-drafting
The Run Course, takes a technical four lap (2.5km) run around Jersey's Waterftont and Elizabeth Marina. Runners will also get a spectacular close of view of Elizabeth Castle, as they run out along the elevated Marina wall.
