If you’re a strong swimmer and want to give swimrun a try, then this could be your perfect event.

I was supposed to Breca Swimrun Jersey with Helen Webster, editor of 220 Triathlon. Two days before the event, she sent me a very apologetic email. She’d picked up a nasty infection and wouldn’t be able to race.

And that was a problem because you need to race with a partner in Breca swimrun events.

The frantic search for a substitute commenced, and in a short space of time unearthed Ian Jones, a Jersey-based Channel swimmer and triathlete. The race was back on.


I met Ian for the first time at the compulsory race briefing on the Friday evening before the race. Like me, he hadn’t done swimrun before but, as a local, he was at least familiar with the route. I went back to my hotel to check my kit for a final time and we met again the next morning on the start line.
