Round the Rock
Saturday 5th August sees runners set out to circumnavigate Jersey in the 7th Round the Rock. The route covers 48 miles and is a fast course ideally suited to both new ultra runners and those seeking a fast time. After the first running of the event, winner Dan Doherty stated that he thought a sub-6 hour time was achievable and the organisers decided to offer a £2000 prize to anyone who could attain it. It wasn't until 2015 that Paul Martiletti and Steve Way won the prize with a time of 5:46. In 2016, the organisers invited all previous champions to return and go head-to-head. Martiletti beat his previous year's time and holds the course record of 5:42. Can this be beaten this year?

Good luck to everyone taking part, whether you're aiming for sub-6 or sub-12 hours. Let us know how you get on!
