Because of your great feedback and reviews, we’re through to Round 2 of the Challenge Awards!

Island Races have been nominated in 2 Categories:

BEST MULTISPORT EVENT: Both The Islander and Mersea Sprint are in this category and BEST ORGANISER!

If you fancy a middle distance Tri that's a touch harder than most do this one , great atmosphere from all involved especially the Islanders, back next year

The Islander -what a great race !
Well organised, the swim was amazing in calm warm water, fast scenic bike course, the run around the island was slightly more challenging with some tough sections over the beach. Overall I would say highly recommended and i'll definitely be back for 2020.

Amazing original course, incredible organisation and friendly family crowd. The finish area felt like a festival. A Bucket list must
