What started as a loose collection of runners at Kingston’s local reservoir, affectionately called “The Dam”, became a club - the Jamdammers - in June 1995. Over the past years, we have grown both in size (over 100 members) and stature by re-writing the book on road racing in Jamaica.
The annual Reggae Marathon Grand Prix Series presented by the Jamdammers and our premier event - the Reggae Marathon, Half Marathon & 10K - have become staples of local and international road race calendars. Despite these lofty achievements, however, one thing remains constant - the feeling of camaraderie and fun that ensures “once a Jamdammer, always a Jamdammer”.
In keeping with the Club’s overall goal to bring middle and long distance running in Jamaica to world-class prominence, our members form an experienced pool of race management and technical resources to successfully organize road race events.
