About

 
The St. Jude Virtual 5K is a 3.1-mile run through a course of your choosing.
As you train, join us for a monthly countdown to race week, with virtual activities, entertainment and ways to connect with your fellow runners. 

Here's what's included:

  • Commemorative race number (a real one that we'll mail to you)
  • Premium long-sleeve tech shirt
  • 5K finisher medal

When will I get my race number and other gear?

How it works

 
1. Register.

2. Engage with us. Stay connected via email and social media. Starting with a kickoff in August and running through November, we'll treat you to a Memphis or St. Jude theme each month with training tips, interactive challenges, fundraising information and encouragement from special guests.

3. Consider fundraising. While fundraising is optional for general participants, all registrants will receive personalized tools to make fundraising simple, and can earn great prizes.

4. Prepare to track your race. Learn how to track and submit your time with our Real-Time Remote Racing™ Experience.

5. Train. Get your miles in a safe and socially-distant way.

6. Run your 5K (3.1 miles) on race day, Sat., Dec. 5 for a live virtual start line experience. Be sure to start your tracker before you start your race. While your race can be completed anytime between Sept. 21 - Dec. 5, we encourage all participants to join us on race day.

7. Check your finish time! You'll get your results in real time as you finish your race and you'll be able to see your overall performance along with other finishers.

8. Share your accomplishments. Show us your selfies and your running journey using #StJudeHeroes and #RunForStJude, then celebrate by wearing your race shirt and finisher medal.
