About The Organizers


The Kingston City Run was started in 2013 as the vision of then Jamaica Hotel & Tourist Association (JHTA), Kingston Chapter Chairman, Nicola Madden-Greig. The event is organized annually by The JHTA Kingston Chapter along with key strategic partners The Jamaica Hotel & Tourist Association, The Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB), The Norman Manley International Airport (NMIA) and the Kingston & St. Andrew Municipal Corporation (KSAMC). The event is currently co-chaired by Christopher Jarrett (Area Chairman: JHTA Kingston) and Nicola Madden-Greig (Immediate Past President: JHTA). The event is not-for-profit with proceeds going towards deserving charities. Over the years since inception a specific focus has been on the homeless population.
