The Jameson 5K at Southwestern began in 2001 as a way of honoring the memory of Jaysn Flynn Jameson and to increase the endowment of the Jaysn Jameson Memorial Scholarship Fund at Southwestern University. Each year of the race our goal is to improve upon the last year and build the race to a premiere event for the University and Georgetown.
This year the 5k run will NOT be certified by USA Track & Field. It normally is, but this year the route needed to be changed due to Georgetown street construction. The route still begins on the beautiful campus of Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas, just 30 miles north of Austin. The Jameson 5k takes place on Southwestern University’s Homecoming weekend of each year, and has become a Central Texas Favorite.
