JDC sponsor the Standard Chartered Jersey Marathon ‘Marathon Mile’

We are pleased to once again sponsor the ‘Marathon Mile’ forming part of the Standard Chartered Jersey Marathon weekend, promoting islanders to ‘move more’ and live a healthy and active lifestyle.

Aligning with the Government of Jersey’s strategic strategy, JDC is focussed on putting children first, ensuring that activities feature highly on St Helier’s waterfront and transforming open spaces to bring the community together.

The quality and extent of these public open spaces provides an excellent arena for various events. These areas include: Les Jardins de la Mer, Marina Gardens, Weighbridge Square, Trenton Square and the promenades. We also provide and maintain landscaping and street lighting on Route du Port Elizabeth, Rue de L’Etau and Rue de Carteret.

JDC actively encourage and support their Waterfront estate to be used for a variety of community and charity events. The public open spaces we have created around the Waterfront are an essential ingredient to meet the community’s recreational, sporting and social needs.

The event takes place at the Weighbridge on Sunday 3 October. The Marathon Mile is a special one lap course around the streets of St Helier and open to anyone to participate from the age of 6 years old. You can register and find out more information on:
