St. Jude Kids Marathon & 1-Mile Fun Run


Race day is Saturday, Dec. 4, 2021.


Join St. Jude in encouraging health and wellness for kids!


The St. Jude Kids Marathon is a great way for kids 11 and under to participate in the St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend Virtual Experience. They will have the opportunity to enhance their fitness, focus on acts of kindness and the chance to support the children of St. Jude.

Your child can walk or run 25.2 miles in the weeks leading up to race day, and then run the final mile of their marathon virtually on Sat., Dec. 4. With our virtual experience, we are encouraging all participants to join us wherever you are to complete your final mile on our official race day! Younger children who would like to participate can register to run the 1-mile fun run without completing the kids marathon.

Here's what's included:

  • Commemorative event shirt
  • Finisher medal



Sat., Dec. 4, 2020




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




2021 information coming soon.
