July 28, 2020: After months of uncertainty, today we bring you two announcements. First, we've made the decision to transform this year's St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend into a virtual experience. Second, we're excited to announce that general registration is now open.

As the pandemic continues to disrupt daily life, we're deeply saddened that we're not able to welcome our participants to Memphis this December. While nothing can truly replace an in-person event, we thought long and hard about what makes the St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend memorable: the excitement of the downtown start line, the unpredictability of Memphis weather in December and, above all, our courses that run through the St. Jude campus. We're viewing this as an opportunity: if we can't be together, how can we bring Memphis and St. Jude to you?

We'll be with you every step of the way. From the time you sign up until race week, we're:

To our St. Jude Heroes who signed up prior to July 1, we've automatically transitioned your registration to our virtual experience, where you'll still receive exclusive benefits.  Please check your email for more information and for the option to make changes to your registration, should that be your preference.

Safety remains our top priority — both for our participants and supporters, who make this race what it is, and for our St. Jude patients, who are our inspiration, and who are immuno-compromised.
