About the event
It 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 USATF certified marathon course will take runners through this historic island and past several iconic landmarks. The course will also showcase the natural beauty of the island as 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.
