The St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend is the single-largest one-day fundraising event for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, one of the world's premier pediatric cancer research centers.

Registration fees help us put on the race, but if you'd like to help us reach our goal of $12.3 million for the kids of St. Jude, please donate or fundraise. While fundraising is not required for general registrants, all participants are given a fundraising page and other tools when they sign up.
