St. Jude

Virtual 5K



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




Nov. 29 - Dec. 5, 2020




Anywhere you like to run or walk (your neighborhood, trails, etc.)






How it works

1. Register. Choose a single distance or one of our virtual challenges

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

5. Run a 5K (3.1 miles). Complete your run between Nov. 29 - Dec. 5, and join us each day for a week-long virtual celebration of all you've accomplished for yourself and for the kids of St. Jude.

6. Submit your race time. There are three options for submitting your time: electronic submission, manual time entry and manual entry without a time. Learn more.

7. 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.
