St. Jude Memphis Marathon Reviews


5.0 Stars from 5 Runners





  

By about 2016


Review

I thought it was well organized and supported. The spectators were amazing and it is to benefit a great cause.

The Nuun energy drink supplied at the aid stations immediately caused me GI distress and I shouldn't have taken any since I've never used it before. Most races have Gatorade or Poweraide and this is what I train with. I think this was a poor choice by the race organizers.


Race Tips

I have nothing but praise for how this event was organized and ran. I was in the 2nd corral, so I got to start very close to race time. There were 3 minutes between the start of each corral and I would have not liked being farther back and thus waiting a long time to start. The pacing group I was in (3:10) was spot on through 19, when I had to start slowing d/t GI distress.


5 / 5 Stars


  Some rolling hills, but not too tough of a course

Review

Great course for an even better cause. Running through the St. Jude campus during mile 5 was AMAZING!! The crowd support was great and there were aid stations every mile. I will definitely be back to this one!


Race Tips

The course has some small rolling hills but nothing too bad. The last 6 miles are more downhill. This is a great course to PR on!


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

There are usually plenty of nice hotels around the area you can find and we always seem to stay somewhere decent for around $60.


5 / 5 Stars
