While many races around the country were fretting over declining registration numbers, the St. Jude Memphis Marathon was in the enviable position of seeing gains. The Dec. 2 event saw 25,000 participants, 8,000 of whom raised funds for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. That fundraising brought in $10.3 million this year. And perhaps more importantly, 30 percent of runners returned after running the race the year before. The life-saving care is surely a factor of success (02/08/2018) ⚡AMP
If you’re not taking part in one of Saturday’s races, you can support the runners by cheering them on along the route.
One place to do so: Crosstown Arts, which is hosting the “Cancer is a Drag” St. Jude Marathon spirit station from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in the parking lot in front of the Cleveland Street Flea Market at 438 N. Cleveland. Bring your noisemakers and posters to cheer on the runners, and enjoy drag performances, vegan pancakes, bloody marys and more. (11/29/2017) ⚡AMP
