Registration has opened for individuals or groups for this year’s Hel(l)vetia Challenge triathlon.
The annual Credit Suisse event will be split into two sections this year, competitive and non-competitive, to encourage people to take part with family, friends or colleagues. The event is open to everyone, regardless of triathlon experience.
The sporting challenge will take place from 12:00 to 17:00 on 8 July, with the competitive leg taking place at the end of the day.
The circuit begins with a 600-metre swim in Havelet Bay, followed by a one-kilometre bike ride up and down the Val des Terres, concluding with a two-kilometre run along South Esplanade to Castle Cornet and returning to South Esplanade.

Credit Suisse Guernsey CEO, Glen Tonks, said he was delighted to announce the return of the event.
“We’ve streamlined the sign-up process this year, which we hope will encourage more teams to sign up. This event is the perfect way to bring groups together and raise money for a local charity in a friendly open-to-all event,” he said.
Tickets are £10 for an individual and £30 for a team of three. Individuals who sign up will have the opportunity to do a single leg or all three.
Ticket sales will be donated to Credit Suisse’s charity of the year, the Guernsey Society for Cancer Relief.
Charity Chairman, Advocate Peter Atkinson said: “We are grateful to Credit Suisse for their support. The past two years have been difficult for the island’s third sector, so this event is going to have a real impact on our charity and the people we help.”

Islanders are encouraged to meet at Havelet slipway to support participants and join in with the positive, party atmosphere where there will be a local DJ and a barbeque.
