Thank you for visiting the Eureka St Jude Run site! The St Jude Runs began in 1982 with a small group of runners raising money and awareness for St Jude by running from Memphis to Peoria. Within a few years more people wanted to participate than the run could handle logistically, so additional run cities were added. Today there are 35 cities that have a St Jude Run. We stagger our start times based on distance so that the runs from all those cities reach downtown Peoria at about the same time. This is Eureka's sixth year with a run. We have experienced growth each and every year of our existence, and we still have room for more! Please take a little time to peruse our website for additional information and contact us with questions. We would love to have you join us for our 2020 run!!
