The Breca Jersey Swimrun is on for 2021 and is better and wetter than ever.

The full course is on pause this year but the sprint distance promises to deliver a day to remember so get your wetsuits at the ready and get set to conquer Breca Jersey.

Little feats. Big thrills. Your Breca adventure starts here.

Race against the tide.

As a racing destination, Jersey never stands still for a moment. With some of the largest tides in the world, the island is on the move as you race, from the gorse-clad coastlines and grassy sand dunes to sweeping bays that change shape as the tide rises.

It almost goes without saying you’ll need to be a strong swimmer and runner to complete the race, and possess more than a smidgen of mental toughness, but with the right attitude, training and teammate, it’ll be an experience that lives long in the memory.
