Hospice 2 Hospice half marathon
Sunday, March 29th
We are proud to present the very first Hospice 2 Hospice half marathon road race.
Run through the beautiful west of the island in our inaugural half marathon. The race is open to individuals or a relay team of two. The date ties in perfectly for anyone who is training for the Virgin Money London Marathon, as it takes place four weeks before.
Runners will be encouraged to wear old tops to the start of the race, which they can donate in Drop Bins located at the start line. Any donated item will be gathered up by our Retail Team and sold to raise more vital funds for Jersey Hospice Care.
All runners must be age 17 years old and over. There is no upper age limit.
There is a two person relay option for runners. The handover point will be at 6.5 miles and this coincides with the start line of the race as runners pass the Hospice Shop fundraising shop in St Ouen. Runners will be issued with a ‘Go Yellow’ wrist band to pass onto their race partner. It is the responsibility of runners to ensure they are at the handover point in time for their race partner. When entering the relay, please ensure you provide your race partners name and contact details.
Refreshments and water stops: This will be an environmentally-friendly race, so plastic water bottles will not be available. Runners will be asked to bring refillable water bottles with them. Water refill units will be available at the start, at mile 6.5 and again at the finish line. Should runners wish, they can bring a spare water bottle with them on the day to leave on a designated water station table at mile 6.5, thus removing the need to stop to refill. Your water botte MUST be clearly labelled with your name.
Cake and refreshments will be served at the finish line by the wonderful team of Hospice volunteers.
Runners will be able to purchase a technical t-shirt at a cost of £5.00. This is a nominal cost to cover expenses. Male and female versions are available on the registration page.
The race is proudly sponsored by The Tamariki Club.
