Marathon Cheer Station Program

The St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend is an annual event where we join the community to raise funds for the kids of St. Jude. Marathon spectators support participants by cheering for the runners and walkers, and our Cheer Station Program contributes to this energy on race day.

Join us to help runners cross the finish line on Saturday, Dec. 7, 2024!

Cheer on marathon runners with us

We are happy to invite groups, organizations and businesses of all sizes to join our Cheer Station Program. Members of the program provide encouragement and cheer for runners and walkers along the courses at designated cheer zones. Bring your group’s energetic spirit and we’ll provide the St. Jude noisemakers, shirts and poster-making supplies


Cheer Station Program details

Our goal is to make race day a highly rewarding experience for everyone. Here’s what you need to know to get your cheer section started:

  • We ask each group to appoint a leader to serve as the main contact with our Cheer Station Captain.
  • We will work with your group leader to designate a specific spot along the course that will serve as your Cheer Station location.
  • We will provide information ahead of event day about what time to arrive, where to park, how to keep everyone safe and more.
