The Reggae Marathon & Half Marathon is Jamaica’s premier International Marathon Event. Marathoners, sports enthusiasts as well as beginners, converge in Negril, Jamaica’s capital of casual, for a fun event characterized by good vibes and lots of Reggae music.

Enthusiastic supporters come out along the looped, internationally certified course to support participants. Meanwhile, hard working volunteers offer uniquely packaged water and re-hydration fluids at every mile.

Reggae Marathon
What started as a loose collection of runners at Kingston’s local reservoir, Mona Dam, affectionately called “The Dam”, became a club – the Jamdammers – in June 1995. Over the past years, the Club has 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 Club’s mandate and mission to promote a healthy lifestyle through distance running and to put Negril and Jamaica on the map as a world class marathon destination.

In keeping with the Jamdammers’ overall mandate, the presentation of the Reggae Marathon, Half Marathon & 10K has blossomed into an international event, included in the world’s ten best marathon events.
