The main purpose of JRR is to encourage a healthy lifestyle and honest competition. Hence, with the
end of each season we hold an end of season awarding ceremony which reflects regular participation of club members; requiring that a member completes 9 (out of 15) races to be considered for an award.
JRR started as early as 1981, and remained active in the Jeddah community with a yearly running season consisting of an average of 15 events scheduled between the months of September and April (avoiding hot summer season). The races include all range of distances, from 1 Mile to full marathon (42.2k).
