St. Jude Half-Marathon recognized nationally | Community Spirit
February's edition of Runner's World magazine is recognizing the Memphis St. Jude Half-Marathon as one of the best half-marathons in the country.
The experts at the magazine praised the scenic tour of Memphis during the race. That tour includes Sun Studios, the National Civil Rights Museum, AutoZone Park, Beale Street, and the campus of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
The article says that most runners participate in the race specifically to support the Hospital, and are often moved by the families and patients who line the course.
