Thank you to all of our participants and volunteers for a successful St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend! 2018 was our biggest year yet, with 26,000 participants and $11.2 million raised for the kids of St. Jude. Read more about our record-breaking year.
Registration for St. Jude Hero fundraising entries will open to the public on May 1, 2019 at 10 a.m. CT. Register for the marathon, half marathon, 10K or 5K by signing up as a St. Jude Hero at one of our committed fundraising levels. Registering as a St. Jude Hero means securing your race entry, getting exclusive benefits and event-weekend perks, and, best of all, knowing that your race will make a real difference in the lives of St. Jude kids.
General registration (fundraising not required) opens June 3, 2019 for all races.
- The St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend is the single largest one-day fundraising event for St. Jude.
- Every race course passes through the campus of St. Jude, one of the world's premier pediatric cancer research centers.
- We're one of the few marathons in the world owned and operated by a charity.
St. Jude has helped push the childhood cancer survival rate from less than 20% when we opened to 80% today. We won't stop until no child dies from cancer. Learn how your race can mean more when you fundraise for St. Jude kids.
We encourage all participants to meet their fundraising goal by race weekend, but Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze St. Jude Heroes have until January 3, 2020 to raise their committed amount.
