General registration for the St. Jude Half Marathon – slated for Saturday, December 1, in Memphis — has sold out in record time. This year’s sell-out marks a new record for the St. Jude Memphis Half Marathon, which last year sold out July 15.
Limited spots are still available for participants who also sign up as a St. Jude Hero and commit to raise at least $500 to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, which treats children from around the world with cancer and other catastrophic illnesses, regardless of a family’s ability to pay. St. Jude Heroes in 2011 raised $4 million for patients.
