Channel Islands running events and running trails

What sort of running events and trails are there?

Outdoor sports are a great way to make the most of the milder weather enjoyed in the Channels Islands. With beautiful and often challenging coastlines and pretty inland routes, the islands of Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney, Sark and Herm make for a great place to walk, run, cycle or generally just get out about and enjoy. There are a good number of Channel Islands running events and running trails taking place each year:

  • Guernsey Ultra 36 miles – Starting in St Peter Port, 17 miles of steep and challenging coastal paths with stunning views before a more gentle finish.
  • Round the Rock Ultra – Early morning start for a 48 mile run in Jersey circling the island. Relay teams, solo runners or challenge yourself to break the 6 hour mark!
  • Double Islands Ultra – 48 miles in Jersey followed by 36 miles in Guernsey
  • 5 Islands Ultra – Yes, you’ve guessed – around 100 miles of running encompassing the islands of Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney, Sark and Herm and meeting up with running events taking place on the islands at the same time over the 3 days. Travel, food, accommodation and a masseur included! A popular event, early booking advised.
  • Titanium Man Triathlon – situated in Jersey with 3 choices of course length, the event can be entered as a solo competitor or relay team of 2 or 3 participants. Beginning with a swim around a triangular course at St Aubin’s Fort, it is followed by a circular cycle around the island in a westerly direction. This includes the rugged and challenging north coast path! Finishing with a flat running course. Goody bags and medals for all participants plus winning prizes.
