Organiser's Description


750m Sea Swim, 20km Bike, 5km Run

New Location!! Start with a 750m sea swim. Once out of the water they hop through the beach huts to the new transition area off the esplanade. The Cycle leads competitors around the country roads of West Mersea before returning to the transition area to take on the Run. The run is half on the beach and half on the road before finishing. There, spectators gather to cheer each competitor back across the line. It has become a tradition for each competitor to remain at the finish to cheer each and every participant home.

Finisher Medal and T-Shirt for all competitors!!!

Prizes awarded to 1st, 2nd & 3rd Senior Male/Female, Vet Male/Female, Super Vet Male/Female and Juniors

Island Races is held on Mersea Island. The Island is situated on the Blackwater Estuary on the East Coast of England in Essex, approximately 8 miles from the nearest town Colchester and 60 miles from London. Mersea is a beautiful Island surrounded by stunning beaches, coastal paths, cliffs and marshland spoiled with wildlife. East Mersea boasts the Cudmore Grove Country Park that teems with wildlife, in particular migrating birds. It is also famous for its eroding cliffs that have been known to expose both bear and mammoth fossils. West Mersea is the bigger of the two villages and is also the hub of the sailing and fishing communities. There are creeks littered with moored yachts and fishing boats and the surrounding marshland is protected for its populations of birds and occasional seals.
