St. Mary's is proud to partner with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital to promote running and wellness in our community!

Do you need a training plan for the Memphis St. Jude Marathon? Are you new to running? Whatever your goal or your age, everyone is invited to be a part of Team St. Mary's as we work and train together to benefit St. Jude. There's no cost for the training runs or plans, and there's no fundraising requirement.

Join us for training runs!

For the 5K, half marathon, and marathon relay we will meet in the fall on Saturday mornings at the north campus for long runs. Children under 11 must be accompanied by an adult. We will run from the North campus, to Waring Road, and onto the Greenline. The course will be clearly marked. For the kid's marathon, we will meet twice a month on a weeknight on Southard track and children can log miles with their families.
