Did You Know?
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 ten years, we have grown both in size (over 100 members) and stature by re-writing the book on road racing in Jamaica. The annual Jamdammers Grand Prix Series and our premier event — The Reggae Marathon & Half Marathon — 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. Our most notable achievement to date is the annual Reggae Marathon & Half Marathon held in the resort town of Negril, every first Saturday in December. Presenting the Reggae Marathon each year, is our way of offering a world-class experience to visitors and Jamaicans by combining the best of Jamaica — sports, music and tourism in one single event. The event is certified by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) and is a member of the Association of International Marathons (AIMS).
