Hawksford Castle Chase

Elizabeth Castle

Event Overview

The Hawksford Castle Chase returns and it's a challenging as before.  2 miles across the sand to Elizabeth Castle and back may sound easy, but it's harder than it looks....uphill on the way out across the sand, avoiding rocks, up into the Castle Parade Ground against the wind.....AND BACK.   This is a two-person relay event like no other!

Each relay member will be racing from the shore line on the beach in front of the Castle out to Elizabeth Castle and back.  This is a short but challenging distance of 2 miles across the sand at low-tide.  

The event has been designed with Corporate Teams in mind, but anyone can enter. Your entry fee and all the money you fundraise from the event goes to support Jersey Heritage Elizabeth Castle restoration fund.

Normal Entry Fee - £40 for a relay team of two people

Jersey Heritage Corporate Member Normal Entry Fee - £35 for a team of two
