Out of an abundance of caution, we’ve made the decision to adjust timing for registration. We’re closely monitoring the global COVID-19 situation, and, as always, will continue working with state and local organizations to make the event as safe as possible for our participants, spectators, volunteers and staff. All of our St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend participants are part of the St. Jude family, and we extend our caring thoughts for your health and safety.
Participants can register for the marathon, half marathon, 10K or 5K as a St. Jude Hero starting June 1, 2020 at 10 a.m. CT, or as a general participant (fundraising not required) starting July 1, 2020 at 10 a.m. CT.
