Great Urban Race

Have a wacky, urban adventure and help St. Jude

Part scavenger hunt and part party, Great Urban Race has partnered with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital to save the lives of children with cancer and other deadly diseases.

You and a friend will team up to solve 12 clues and complete physical and mental challenges by walking, running or using public transportation. You'll scavenge for random items, decipher puzzles or complete a physical challenge or game in your choice of 20 cities across the country.

All participants are encouraged to sign up to become St. Jude Heroes and help to raise funds to support St. Jude.

Prior to race day, St. Jude Heroes raise money for the hospital by securing pledges from family and friends.

As a St. Jude Hero, you'll get access to the St. Jude Heroes VIP tent, including:

  • St. Jude Hero cape
  • St. Jude water bottle
  • charging station
  • free food and drink
  • bag check
  • St. Jude hydration pack
