Hundreds of runners run in the Memphis marathon

More than 26,000 runners and walkers recently laced up their shoes for the 2018 St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend, the largest single-day fundraising event for St. Jude.

Over 40,000 spectators cheered on participants in five races, ranging from a full marathon to a 5K. The event involved 4,000 volunteers and 6,500 St. Jude Heroes, who raised $11.2 million for the hospital.

Don’t miss your chance to take part in the next St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend, slated for December 7, 2019. Registration will open in May for St. Jude Heroes who commit to fundraising, and general registration will begin in June.
