Jersey Half  Marathon - Sunday, 9th June 2019


The Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management Jersey Half Marathon is a scenic, fast point to point road race which attracted around 800 entries in 2018.

The Half Marathon can be run as an individual or as four person team (each team member must complete the half marathon), alternatively run the 2 person relay with each runner running approximately 10km: these options will be available when entering the race online.




START 9.00am at St. Ouen’s Parish Hall, La Grande Route de St. Ouen

The changeover point for the Relay will be in the large gravel car park before La Pulente, Five Mile Road.



FINISH at Le Jardin de Mer, Waterfront, St.Helier

We would encourage you to support the JSAD wheelers that will start at 10am from St Aubins.




Please follow the instructions of both the Honorary Police and marshals; they are there to ensure your safety and the Race Organisers will disqualify runners for not following their instructions. Their support allows these events to continue so please give them a smile.

Runners wish  to wear MP3 / Ipods etc, do so as their own risk; please take care and ensure you are able to hear  safety instructions and other road users.

Numbers must be worn on the front of your shirts and must be visible at all times.


There will be one section around L’Etacq where marshalls will ask you to run on the RIGHT side, this is for your own safety.

For the majority of the race you will be on roads and will keep to the LEFT side of the road and so you will be running with the traffic.

Whilst running on the Railway Walk and the promenade area of St. Aubin please be aware of walkers, cyclists and other members of the public, you do not have right of way and please remember to thank them if they give way.
