The Accuro Jersey Triathlon all set to welcome its largest field of triathletes on Sunday 1 July 2018
With triathlon growing exponentially around the globe and on the Island, the Accuro Jersey Triathlon is all set to welcome
some six hundred triathletes, from novices through to Commonwealth Games level athletes, to the event on Sunday 1 July 2018.
The Jersey Triathlon is delighted to welcome back Accuro as headline sponsor and organisers are confident that, with the continued support of Accuro, the Jersey Triathlon can attract even more competitors to the event from overseas as well as enhance the overall event experience for local competitors.
Paul Douglas, MD of Accuro Trust in Jersey, commented: “Having been the title sponsors for the last three years, we are delighted to have seen the event grow from strength to strength. Jersey is now recognised as a key destination for this sport with the Accuro Jersey Triathlon in its sixth year since the re-brand and relocation to St Helier and with the Super League Triathlon having committed to the Island for a further five years. The Accuro Jersey Triathlon provides a platform for triathletes, whether they are beginners or seasoned athletes, to test themselves on a challenging course which brings in some of Jersey’s most beautiful scenery. The multi-disciplined nature of the sport, the fact that it is inclusive of all generations of families, encourages team work and generally promotes well-being and good health resonates well with the ethos of our business”.
Andrew Thomas, Managing Director of 3D Events and organiser of the event, says “We are absolutely delighted to welcome Accuro back as headline sponsor of the event. Accuro share our vision to produce a national standard triathlon event here in Jersey, capable of attracting people of all ages and abilities from both on and off Island. Also, like us, they are passionate about the continued growth of this local sporting event for the benefit of our community, economy and official charity - The Oscar Maclean Foundation".
The spectacle, which will again be centred at Les Jardins de la Mer on the Waterfront in St Helier, will take place on Sunday 1 July 2018 and will raise funds for the Oscar Maclean Foundation. Organisers are calling on the support of the local community to come down to the Waterfront for 8.30am and cheer on the local and off Island athletes as they take on the three disciplines throughout the morning. The junior races will follow the adult races at around midday.
Online registration is open and can be found through the event website here
