What to expect event weekend

We are excited to welcome you to Memphis in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend! Upon your arrival, health screenings will be required for all participants, guests, volunteers and partners to access all indoor events.

You will only be required to complete the health screening once, regardless of how many events you attend. Once you have completed the health screening at your first indoor event, you will receive a wristband for admission. This wristband will be valid for access throughout event weekend. Please do not remove it. As a reminder, this process is also required for all attendees.

Our goal is to provide an efficient and quick health screening process. This requires your adherence to our health & safety protocols and processes. We ask that you stay up-to-date on all event communications now through race week. Thank you for your patience and grace as we navigate this journey together.
