Celebrating 20 years of running
We are excited to announce that the 2021 St. Jude Memphis Marathon® Weekend presented by Juice Plus+, in support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, is proudly celebrating 20 years running!
It’s a remarkable milestone, one that we look forward to celebrating with all of our St. Jude supporters. Because of you, more people from around the world have embraced the St. Jude mission: Finding cures. Saving children.®
Our history is filled with incredible accomplishments. Two decades worth, in fact, which is why we are inviting you to join us as we reflect on the lasting impact of the St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend and all that we have made possible, together, for the kids of St. Jude.
While we are hopeful about welcoming you to an in-person event in Memphis this year, our top priority remains the safety and wellbeing of our St. Jude patient families, our participants, volunteers, and partners. As we make decisions about this year’s event, we will continue to work collaboratively with state and local officials to ensure a safe event.
As we open registration this spring for the 2021 St. Jude Memphis Marathon® Weekend, there will be two participation options: in-person in Memphis or our Virtual Experience, which can take place from wherever you are.
