Run Jersey Events seeks to make the Jersey Half Marathon an eco friendly event. We will not be supplying or using plastic bottles and are looking to reduce waste. Water will be available at the start and finish, but you will need to supply your own cup / bottle. On the race course water (4,7,10 and 12 miles) will be supplied in edible seaweed pods as used at London Marathon. Alternatively please carry your own water supply. This will save over 2000 cups / plastic bottles from being disposed and reduce the quantity of water wasted.
We take your safety very seriously and try to provide a safe environment for you to race in however your safety is your personal responsibility. Every year we have serious incidents and normally it is through runners not being hydrated prior to the event and not recognising vital signs of over heating / dehydration etc; please read the following advice:
If you are feeling that your heart rate , temperature and breathing are not as you would normally expect during such a physical challenge you must STOP, cool down and decide whether you should walk, retire or carry on.
