Start time coming soon.

The 1-mile St. Jude Memphis Family Fun Run is the perfect race for kids to walk or run with a grown-up. Your child can be a part of marathon weekend by fundraising for the kids of St. Jude and then running part of the marathon course on race day.

  1. Children 11 years old or younger as of race day can participate.

    Your child must be accompanied by an adult during the race. Parents are entirely responsible for their children and family members. Strollers and baby joggers are allowed; however, for safety reasons, we ask that you start in the back of the pack, regardless of whether you are walking or running.

  2. A minimum of two participants must register (one adult and one child). Additional children or adults can be added to your team during registration.

  3. Register for the St. Jude Memphis Family Fun Run and you'll automatically be a St. Jude Hero (no fundraising minimum required). What a great opportunity to teach your children the importance of health and helping others.

    Within 48 hours of registering, we'll email you information on how to set up your personal fundraising website.

  4. St. Jude Memphis Family Fun Run participants can pick up their race packets at the expo. Your packet will include:

    • official T-shirt
    • race number (required on race day)
    • goodie bag

    After finishing the race, participants will receive a finisher meal.

  5. Immediately following the St. Jude Memphis Family Fun Run and Kids Marathon, the Fogelman YMCA will host the official post-race celebration featuring games, a moon bounce, food and more. We'll have lots of mascots there to help celebrate your victory!
