The JMRC, short for the Jelle’s Marble Runs Committee, is directly involved in consulting with and advising Jelle on his videos. Our goal is to maintain the quality of marble sports established by JMR and to extend its popularity throughout the world. With our resources, we help JMR wherever we can: We debate the design of videos, events, and rules, establish official canon, maintain the wiki, run social media promotion, and much more. Our impulse is our passion for this, our motivation is the community, and our loyalty is to the sport!
The overall task of this committee is to ensure that all JMR Original Series run smoothly and without any complications. We review every event before it is released to ensure no mistakes have made it into the final upload, and ensure that every event is released on time. Most importantly, we consult with the JMR fanbase daily, which is commonly active on our Official Jelle’s Marblebase Discord and on our subreddit, r/JellesMarbleRuns. We listen to your complaints, we listen to your wishes or anything you have to say about the events, and together we will find solutions for any given problems.
On our main discussion platform, which is currently on Discord, we communicate and discuss any JMR-related matter. We review your messages, your tweets, and your comments beneath any event and evaluate how satisfied you are. We function best when we receive feedback, so please don’t hesitate to contact us and share your opinion. It is our task to handle criticism and we are trained to stay professional while doing so. In the end, we all want the same thing – for Jelle’s Marble Runs to have the best content possible and for we, the fans, to enjoy said content as much as possible.

Discord : Betawolfs#2652
Reddit : u/betawolfs
Our artist, Betawolfs, joined the JMRC in the beginning of the 2019 Marble League. Beta is like the Stynth of Marble League artwork. She has worked on a ton of projects where she continuously delivers masterpieces. During the fan vote, her team (the Woodland Foxes) had many votes because their logo and artwork were so good. Whenever we need help with artwork for articles or other projects, Beta comes in clutch. She designed the Seven Seas Stadium and helps with lore writing. In her free time, she can be found drawing marble polaroids, which you can commission and purchase yourself from her independently of JMRC at https://twitter.com/BetawolfsMarble?s=17.
Our marketer, Alayjo is known in our community for his great social media skills. He got interested in the Marble League during the middle of the 2019 competition, and soon after took initiative to try and immerse the community through social media and artwork with his brother, creating amazing montages along the way (especially for their Mellow Yellow Twitter account) as well as the Marbula One team posters. Alayjo runs the Marbula One social media accounts on Twitter and Instagram (https://twitter.com/MarbulaOne).
Our project coordinator, Tom, did a lot of seriously impressive analysis on not only the marbles’ performances but also on how the JMR channel performs. He became a fan of the Marble League after the 2019 qualifiers and started collecting data to understand why some marbles seem faster and fitter than others. He’s helping with Marble League planning to make ML20 the most exciting Marble League yet. In addition, Tom has done extensive work behind the scenes with Marbula One, helping to record lap times and code them into the running table at the end of each lap.
Our designer and analyst, Spex, joined the JMRC just before the start of Marbula One. He creates our Marbula One track maps and helps out with timing and scoring. In his spare time he collects marbles, especially those related to JMR. He also skydives and wingsuits on the nicer weekends.
Our writer and editor, Valencia Parker, joined the JMRC after the fourth release of The Rollout magazine. Valencia is a patient longform journalist that specializes in athlete interviews and behind the scenes work. Valencia also does a fair amount of work not only in the writing of The Rollout but also parts of the design and editing for the magazine. Valencia is very excited to continue his work on The Rollout and see what other capacities he can be used for in the JMRC.
