Tracking and fundraising apps

* Please note: the St. Jude Heroes app is not used for tracking your race.

  1. The runner tracking app is the only way runners can submit their run time for the St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend Virtual Experience.

    The runner tracking app uses GPS tracking from your phone or through your Strava-connected device to track your distance, pace and time automatically. Participants and spectators will also have access to an interactive map and live updates about any runner. 

  2. Runners who fundraise for St. Jude while training for their race are part of a nationwide alliance against childhood cancer. They're called St. Jude Heroes.

    St. Jude Memphis Marathon runners can fundraise on the go with the St. Jude Heroes app. Runners can update their pages, send emails, check their progress and connect to Apple HealthKit to track their physical activity – all from the palm of their hand. The St. Jude Heroes app is a great tool to track fundraising progress, and to keep current on all St. Jude news!
