The Jekyll Island Marathon (JIM) is the only 26.2 run being held on any of the Georgia barrier islands.  Considered the “Jewel” of Georgia, Jekyll Island is the ideal location to host the JIM.  The JIM course will take runners through the Jekyll Island Club National Historic Landmark.  The landmark is comprised of 34 historic landmarks.  The course will also showcase the natural beauty of the island.  Runners will pass under the canopies of the majestic live oaks and wide open beaches.  Recently built boardwalks will provide runners with beautiful vistas that will make the miles fly by.

The Jekyll Island 10k course will include similar features of the Turtle Crawl 10k course. It will be flat and fast.

New for 2020 - We have added the inaugural Jekyll Island Half Marathon! Additionally, we will be ending the race at the Village Green by the Westin hotel and shopping area.
