Race description

We appreciate that everyone is disappointed that there will be no NatWest International Island Games in Guernsey this summer. Therefore the International Island Games Association (IIGA) are doing all that we can in order to keep the fire burning in our Member Islands. The answer this summer is the IIGA 5k Challenge – for you and everyone on your island!

We challenge everyone to either run or walk 5 kilometres which will be registered in the RaceONE application (free to download and no hidden costs whatsoever). The best times for male and females and for the most participants per island will be announced winners! The number of participants per island will be pro rata to the population and so all member islands, large or small will have a chance to win. The race will be just for fun for the majority to encourage physical activity, but for some also a chance to compete with other islanders.

The race will start on the 3rd of July and end one week later, on the 9th of July. The procedure to take part is simple and free of any charge. To join in, this is what you need to do:

  • Register your island where the title of the box is CLUB, no code is required.
  • No payment is required, you do not need to pay £1-99 to follow
  • Follow the instructions and race between 3-9 July. Only one attempt will be registered.
  • Press START and then continue. Your race will not start until you press START IMMEADIATELY.
  • You can register on the app now but you will not be able to race until 3 July.
  • Share as much as you can and challenge your friends and everyone else.
