St. Jude Marathon this Saturday!

The St. Jude Marathon is this Saturday and that means we’ll be having several thousand runners come through our neighborhood. The first thing to check out is the route map here. All of Cooper will be used as well as parts of Mclean, Evelyn, Walker, Tanglewood, and Southern. They expect runners to be through our area between 9:45 and 1. I believe streets will start closing around 9 and stay closed until the runners are through.

Next, we’re excited to host our annual water station for the participants! We’ll be at Mile 19 which is located at Walker and Tanglewood. We’re looking for volunteers to help us keep the runners hydrated and cheer them on so please give us a shout at info@cooperyoung.org if you’re interested in volunteering. This is a great way to get involved with this Memphis-wide event and we always have a blast helping out.
