Run the best race of the season in Memphis, home of the blues and birthplace of rock 'n' roll


Participants who choose to fundraise are called St. Jude Heroes. Registration fees help us put on the race; donating or fundraising as a St. Jude Hero directly helps St. Jude kids. Fundraising is not required for general registrants, but all participants are given a fundraising page and other tools when they sign up.

Choose Your Race


Pack your shoes for the home of the blues

  • Marathon weekend is the biggest event of the year in historic Memphis, Tenn., home of the blues and birthplace of rock 'n' roll.
  • Every race course passes through the campus of St. Jude, one of the world's premier pediatric cancer research centers.
  • Though fundraising is not required, all participants get the tools and guidance they need to fundraise as a St. Jude Hero when they sign up.

Families never receive 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.

The fundraising deadline for St. Jude Heroes is January 5, 2018.
