Trail Monkey started in January 2018 – our mission was to spread our love of the trails to all and show just how beautiful our island is.
The founder Paul Burrows is a runner himself – having taken part in numerous Half Marathons, Marathons and Ultra Marathons and also being the founder of parkrun in Jersey he has been involved in running in Jersey at numerous levels over the years.
At all Trail Monkey races you will also see Co-Founder Nicola Gott who has also taken part in numerous, marathons and ultra marathons and was with Paul from the very beginning of Jersey parkrun.
Trail Monkey offers trail races, ranging from 5km to 10km, Trail Half Marathons and Ultra Marathons – our ethos is to include anyone who wants to be part of our community – we have built quite a community of Trail Monkeys through 2018 and we hope to make all newcomers welcome and feel included regardless of ability or running experience. We hope to challenge runners, in a safe well organised environment and see you finish our races with a smile. After 9 amazing years, Digby has stepped down as race director of Round The Rock and we have stepped in, we hope to do the event proud and keep the legacy of this iconic race alive.
