A grueling 48-mile challenge takes place in Jersey tomorrow, which will see competitors run round the island.

Athletes will follow the granite cliffs of the North Coast to the golden sands of St. Ouen's Bay and the South Coast.

Runners are expected from the Channel Islands and far beyond.

It kicks off at 6am at the Steam Clock in St Helier.

The cut of time for the race is 12 hours, but a six hour challenge has been set.

In 2015 £2,000 was offered for anyone who could complete the course in six hours or less.

Steve Way and Paul Martiletti smashed the record and took away the £2,000 prize after achieving an incredible time of 5 hours, 46 minutes.

Round the Rock is supporting local charities for the event including Autism Jersey and Headway Jersey.
