Your safety and well-being are our top priority as we work to create an event that's fun and inspiring — both for our participants and supporters, and for our St. Jude patients, who are immunocompromised and participate in our races in a variety of ways.

Our teams are working on several plans, including the possibility of a modified or virtual event, and we will be making announcements regularly about what you can expect this year.

As always, we remain committed to:

  • Bringing you a premier event experience
  • Giving you the opportunity to support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude while doing something good for yourself
  • Recognizing and rewarding your fundraising efforts

Thank you for your continued support of this race, and we look forward to sharing more information with you soon.



Upgrade your race experience by fundraising as a St. Jude Hero. You could earn a singlet, an interactive race weekend wristband or even a hotel stay.



See our new training resources center for training plans for each race distance, running tips and more. Whatever your goals, we've got you covered.
