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.

  • Did the Breca Jersey in 2019

    Unbelievably epic event!! This race takes you around almost the entire island of Jersey over 17 swim/run stations. Challenging course but the scenery is incredible and the course is super adventurous. Ample aid stations with friendly volunteers spurred us on. And it was awesome to finish the race at the Portelet Inn - super finish line atmosphere and great to share celebratory pints and war stories with fellow competitors!
