Nine by Five is a fantastic endurance challenge to view Jersey in ways you may never have before and to raise valuable funds for your Hospice. The challenge is one of two halves and two days, ‘The West’ on Saturday and ‘The East’ on Sunday, with both routes starting at the heart of the challenge, Jersey Hospice Care. ‘The West’ route starts at Jersey Hospice Care, Mont Cochon, and heads south down the hill before turning towards St Aubin and looping around the west of the island, finishing at Hospice. (approx 40km) ‘The East’ route starts at Jersey Hospice Care, Mont Cochon, and heads north towards Les Platons before turning right and looping around the east of the island, finishing at Hospice. (approx 40km) The Nine by Five Challenge offers an unforgettable weekend full of support, camaraderie, determination, and achievement - all in aid of the important care and support provided by Jersey Hospice Care. The Challenge is for a wide range of fitness levels and is open to anyone over the age of 16. Whether you want to complete the whole challenge yourself, do it as part of a relay, if you really want to push yourself and run the whole route, it is up to you. Checkpoints and refuel stations will be dotted along the routes on both days to keep you hydrated and to move bags between stations.
