Starting May 1, 2017, register as a St. Jude Hero at the Bronze, Silver or Gold fundraising level for the marathon, half marathon, 10K or 5K. These VIP entries will only be available May 1 - May 31. More information will be available soon about VIP perks and benefits. General registration for any remaining entries opens June 1 for all races.
Registration fees help us put on a great race, but fundraising is the best way to support the kids of St. Jude.
Why fundraise as a St. Jude Hero?
- Registration fees offset the cost of the race, but funds raised by St. Jude Heroes support the hospital.
- The St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend is the single largest one-day fundraising event for St. Jude.
- We're one of the few marathons in the world owned and operated by a charity.
The fundraising efforts of St. Jude Heroes help ensure no family ever receives a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. Learn how your race can mean more when you fundraise.
