Marathon Mile Kindly Sponsored by 



The Jersey Development Company (JDC) said;


Jersey Development Company (JDC) is delighted to sponsor the Standard Chartered Jersey Marathon Marathon Mile, promoting islanders to ‘move more’ living a healthy, active lifestyle.

Our role as the Government of Jersey's property development arm is to complete the development of the St Helier Waterfront and regenerate government-owned property that is no longer required for the delivery of public services.

We are also responsible for the development of the Waterfront Estate, 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 spaces we have created around the Waterfront, help to build a stronger and more vibrant town which also promotes an outdoor active lifestyle, for islanders and visitors to benefit and enjoy.
