The St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend is the single-largest one-day fundraising event for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, one of the world's premier pediatric cancer research centers. Registration fees help us put on the race, but if you'd like to help us reach our goal of $12.5 million for the kids of St. Jude, please donate or fundraise. While fundraising is not required for general registrants, all participants are given a fundraising page and other tools when they sign up. The marathon follows a scenic Boston-qualifying course through the city of Memphis, starting outside FedExForum. Near mile 5, the course passes through the St. Jude campus, where patients, their families and other onlookers gather to cheer. Runners will also pass through Overton Park, scenic neighborhoods and several Memphis historic areas before finishing in front of a crowd on Union Avenue. After the race, participants can join the finish festival at AutoZone Park.
