Proudly celebrating 20 years running...fundraising, volunteering, and cheering.


(July 15, 2021) – Running on race day is just one of many ways to take part in our 20th anniversary St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend presented by Juice Plus+. Take a peek here to see how you, your friends, family members and colleagues can choose to be involved this special year.

  • Volunteers play a vital role in making event weekend memorable and safe. From packet pick up at the Expo to the start line and all the way through the finish line experience, we invite individuals, groups and participant friends and family to join our volunteer team for a highly rewarding experience. Check out our Volunteer page to find the position best suited to you and be sure to grab your spot when registration opens on Wednesday, September 1.
  • Show Your St. Jude Spirit! We are looking for groups, organizations and businesses of all sizes who would love to have a great time while cheering on our runners along the courses. You bring your people and the energetic spirit, we’ll take care of the rest. Simply complete our Cheer Station Sign-Up to get the party started!
  • Can’t make it to Memphis for event weekend? No worries, we’ll bring you along on this inspiring journey from wherever you are. Registration is now open for our Virtual Experience.
  • We are closing in on $100 million raised in support of the kids of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. We've created resources that make it easy to fundraise. Those raising $250 or more receive a patient-inspired singlet or tech shirt and have the opportunity to earn additional recognition items.

Bring the kids along, too! We are happy to announce the return of our Kids Marathon & 1-Mile Fun Run.  It’s an easy route that ends at the official finish line so kids can experience the cheer of the crowd. Kids also have the opportunity to fundraise and earn cool recognition items! Registration opens August 16.

Participate, fundraise, volunteer, cheer – are you in for our 20th anniversary year?
