JLM 5K/10K


After careful consideration keeping the health and safety of our participants, volunteers and spectators in mind, and in response to the recommendations by the CDC regarding group/crowd size for gatherings, we are transitioning this year’s JLM 5K / 10K to a Virtual Race. This was a difficult decision; however, we believe it to be our best option to continue our event this year. Whatever else is going on in the world, our community programs still count on the Junior League of Memphis to support their needs in the Memphis community.


When: October 17, 2020

Where: This is a VIRTUAL race, so you can participate from ANYWHERE!

What is a Virtual Race? A virtual race is a race where participants run, jog, walk or stroll from any location you choose. Maybe it’s your neighborhood, an in-home treadmill or a scenic trail. You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself.

Race Participation Options and Pricing:

  • 5K: $25 (price will increase to $35 on race day)
  • 10K: $35 (price will increase to $45 on race day)
  • Ghost Runner: $25
  • Kids 15 and Under: $15

Making an impact: Your registration directly supports the work that the JLM is doing in the community.

  • Funds raised through the JLM 5K/10K directly support the JLM’s efforts to provide trained volunteers and financial support to community partnerships and programs. Your registration fee is going back to the following community programs: G.R.O.W., Camp Good Grief, Carpenter Art Garden, Habitat for Humanity, Memphis Athletic Ministries, Memphis Tilth, Refugee Empowerment Program, REACH Memphis, The Hagar Center, Longstreet Women’s Empowerment and Kids in the Kitchen.
