If you are looking for an epic backdrop for your next finish line or an active weekend to come up for air, put the island break on your bucket list today.

RUN.

MAKE EVERY LAP COUNT.

With a network of green lanes and run-friendly tracks, Jersey is a runner's dream. Breathe in breathtaking scenes as you pass through living relics of Jersey's rich and varied history. Breeze through a trim trail on southern shores as the sun sinks over Elizabeth Castle, or climb through St. Peter’s Valley passing Le Moulin de Quetivel, the island’s only surviving water mill – you don’t have to scratch far beneath the surface to experience Jersey’s incredible history.

 

 

TRAIL RUN.

ON THE WILD SIDE OF JERSEY.

Jersey offers unexpected gems that should put it high on any trail runner’s bucket list: historic backdrops, warm, friendly locals and beachside food set against the Jersey National Park. With 48 miles of spectacular coastline, and more than 3,280 feet of climbs, Jersey is perfect for trail running. Take on sheer cliff path trails along Jersey’s north coast, passing quaint fishing villages and WWII bunkers.  On a clear day, you can see right out to France – close enough to touch at just 12 miles off Jersey’s coast. 

BIKE.

ON AN ISLAND MADE FOR TWO WHEELS.

We may be small, but we pack many diverse, beautiful and challenging cycle routes into our nine miles by five.  With 350 miles of roads, valleys and green lanes, breathe in the fresh sea air and revitalise on two wheels. Warm up with gentle spins along sandy seascapes or tackle a pulse-raising hill climb to Jersey’s North coast - we have tracks for all fitness levels. Add to this our reduced speed limits and stunning scenery and discover an island that is made for two wheels. Saddle up and enjoy the ride.

ON AN ISLAND SHAPED BY THE SEA.

Just being close to the water is enough to soothe the soul and rebalance your mind. From the shallows and golden sands of the south to crystal clear pebble beaches along the north and eastern coast and the Atlantic waves of the west coast, Jersey’s personality changes from coast to coast. Jersey's clean beaches are washed by the sand three times a day by the third largest tide in the world. Dive right into Rozel, Bouley Bay, Bonne Nuit, Archirondel, Ann Port, our natural sea swimming bays, or discover Jersey’s iconic Victorian Lido at Havre de Pas, a tidal pool bathed in soft light at sunset. 

MEET RIK & LISA

9 BY 5 ADVENTURES

It might be a cliché but couples who train together, stay together. Perhaps it’s because they support each other through their fitness goals, share amazing life experiences, and push each other through life’s challenges. We can’t think of a better example than Jersey ambassadors Rik & Lisa, founders of 9x5 adventures, who have taken their couple goals to new heights with their fitness startup which offers bespoke cycling and running tours year round.

REFUEL.

THE JERSEY WAY.

Your body is a high performance engine that needs serious fuel. Swap your energy gels for local fare – delicacies include a Jersey Crab Sandwich from the Hungry Man, Jersey wonders – doughnut like sweet cakes, and for a refreshing treat post-run, you can’t beat a Jersey ice cream.
