Do more with your race
Participants who fundraise at least $250 for St. Jude while training for any St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend race become part of a nationwide alliance against childhood cancer. We call them St. Jude Heroes.
The St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend is the pinnacle event for the St. Jude Heroes program as the largest single-day fundraising event for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. St. Jude Heroes aren't just participating in their race; they're using their strength to make a difference in the lives of children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
Registration fees help us put on a great race, but St. Jude relies on fundraisers and direct donations.
