St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend Registration is Open

Registration opened today for my favorite event  of the year.  The St. Jude Memphis Marathon will take place this year on December 5 in Memphis.  This year will be 4th time running down Beale Street and through the campus of the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.  If you are looking for a December marathon in the south I can not recommend a better race.  The field is a wave of maroon as 9 out 10 runners have all raised money for the hospital and are all there sharing the experience together.  It’s the only race I’ve ever run where people aren’t there for themselves.  I’ve been brought to the point of tears year after year at this race and look forward to going back year after year.

Registration is open May 1 – 31 for Heroes and will open on June 1 for general registration.  There are 3 levels of Hero Registration based on fundraising commitment levels.
