The following measures are in place to ensure Round The Rock Ultra remains a safe event for all in attendance.
Jersey is famous for many things: potatoes, Bergerac and cows being the most obvious, but Round the rock is an unforgettable gem of a race that will literally take your breath away.
We have Solo, relay, marathon and half marathon options and the race starts in St Helier. The route hugs the coast of Jersey in an anti clock wise direction and runners are in for a treat: beautiful scenery, rare wildlife, and friendly runners are par for the course. Whilst the island itself is only 9 miles by 5 the route is 48 miles. Be sure to not miss out on this and sign up today!
Trail Monkey are so excited to be taking over this iconic Channel Isles race after the great job Digby Ellis-Brecknell has done in creating this race and then keeping it going for the last 9 years. We are so looking forward to the tenth anniversary of the race in 2020 and hope you can join us to celebrate!
The race starts from the Steam Clock in St Helier and follows the coastal road past the first check point at St Catherine’s Breakwater, overlooking the Normandy Coastline. The route then switches from tarmac to trail with the cliff paths that start at Rozel and then take in the the stunning granite cliffs of the North Coast then after this the golden sands of St. Ouen’s Bay. We then go on to the beautiful South Coast, with St Brelaides and St Aubins and finally on to the finish. The route is stunning but challenging so do not be fooled: At approximately 48 miles (77Km) and approx 5000ft of ascent this race is a landmark challenge for all who take part!!
Round The Rock has proved a favourite for many and they return year after year to soak up the relaxed atmosphere and testing course. Round The Rock is perfect race for those wanting to step up the distance and enter the ultra world or as training for a longer event.
