    How Kids Marathon works:

  1. Register (If your family is fundraising, you will be sent an email after registration with more information.)
  2. Download our 8-week or 12-week training plans and keep track of your child's progress using our official mileage tracker. Our plans guide your child through all but one mile of a full marathon (26.2 miles) at their own pace.
  3. Submit the signed tracker at the expo, and pick up your race packet, shirt and participant bag.
  4. Run the final mile with your child on race day.
  5. Celebrate their accomplishment immediately after the race! The official post-race celebration, open to kids who raise $25 or more, will feature games, food, and fun.

Kids also have the chance to give back - your child can accept donations on behalf of St. Jude using our donation tracking form. Kids will also receive a personal fundraising page where friends and family can donate directly to their fundraiser online! What a great way to teach the importance of both health and helping others!

 

Packet pickup and finisher medals:

St. Jude Kids Marathon participants must pick up their race packets at the Health & Fitness Expo. There is no race-day packet pickup. Your participant packet will include:

  • official event shirt
  • race number (required on race day)
  • participant bag

After finishing the race, St. Jude Kids Marathon participants will receive a finisher medal. Kids who raise $25 or more are invited to attend the post-race celebration at the Downtown Memphis YMCA.
