Points to Note:
Please note that trail shoes are mandatory for these races as the trails are slippery and with the potential to slip. There will be other mandatory kit items for this race which will be announced in due course. The race is a trail 1/2 marathon, however the distance will definitely not be bang on 13.1 miles, so please mentally prepare yourself for this. The course is marked to ensure that at decision points you will be told where to go, the general principle of these types of races is one of adventure so each twist and turn will not be marked, however as long as you keep the sea on your left, follow footpaths unless indicated to do otherwise and pay attention to the signage on the course you will be fine.
Water stations are 4 miles apart on this course you are expected to carry water receptacles to carry enough water to sustain yourself between these stations and if it is a hot day whilst we will ensure we have sufficient water at the checkpoints to ensure your safety it is your responsibility to carry enough water to hydrate yourself. From 2019 we will be going cupless, therefore if you wish to drink coke or squash at water checkpoints you will be required to carry your own re usable cup. Because the race is in August, it will generally be expected that it may be hot – please train in anticipation of this and take all necessary precautions to ensure your comfort on the day.
If you suffer from any medical conditions please ensure that you place a Red Cross on your race number before race day, and write your medical conditions on the back of the race number with a I.C.E. contact also.

Green Kiwi Sports have over 50 years experience in sports retail originating in Wheways which was located in the centre of St Helier, near the Post Office. Wheways was a family business which was operated by Mark and his Dad for many years until 2011 when we closed due to family circumstances and the growth of online sales.
They have recently decided to re-enter the market again, this time in the guise of Green Kiwi Sports with all business based online. As the saying goes, ‘if you can’t beat them, join them’, so that’s exactly what they decided to do!
They have put together a range of sports equipment with an aim of offering good quality products at the most competitive prices in the market. A lot of research has been done to azure their prices compete with online market places and are so sure of this they say “If you can find a cheaper price anywhere, we will do our best to beat it!” They envisage the range will continue to grow and Green Kiwi are open to any suggestions of products that customers would like to see.
