Proudly celebrating 20 years running... and closing in on $100 million raised for the kids of St. Jude.
St. Jude Heroes® registration is now open for the 2021 St. Jude Memphis Marathon® Weekend presented by Juice Plus+. As a St. Jude Hero, you can choose in-person participation on Saturday, December 4 in Memphis or virtual participation from wherever you are. With both options, Heroes make a fundraising commitment that includes exclusive experiences and benefits along with an event shirt and finisher medal.
Registration for general participants will open on June 1. Benefits include an event shirt and finisher medal.
Be sure to check out our 20th Anniversary Pack comprised of a commemorative t-shirt, vinyl sticker and bib boards for securing your race bib. The Pack is available for purchase when you register as a participant or as a volunteer.
We are actively engaged in planning the event experience you’ve come to expect from us. Our top priority remains the safety and well-being of our patient families, participants, volunteers and partners, therefore we continue to work closely with local health officials on contingency plans should they be needed.
Please register as early as possible. If we are asked to institute capacity limits for reasons outside of our control, then date of registration will be a factor in determining priority for in person race participation and other activities.
