COME JOIN US TO RUN TENNESSEE’S OLDEST MARATHON
RUNNING SINCE 1972!
Smack in the middle of Memphis and Nashville right in West Tennessee you will find beautiful Jackson, Tennessee, home of the Andrew Jackson Marathon. Known as Tennessee’s Oldest Marathon, the Andrew Jackson Marathon starts and finishes in historical downtown Jackson. The course takes runners through the renovated downtown area, beside the University of Memphis Lambuth Campus Arboretum, along tree-lined residential neighborhoods and around the medical center area with challenging hills and great new landscapes. The course offers a half marathon single loop (13.1 miles) and a full marathon double loop (26.2 miles), which makes for an awesome Boston Marathon Qualifier. Come join us, stay for the weekend and see what our beautiful city has to offer.

AUGUST 1, 2020 UPDATE - We've got great news... The Run AJM Jackson Andrew Jackson Marathon will go on but will be held as a virtual race, the first time in its 48 year history! While we'd love to host the race as normal, maintaining the safety and health of all participants/volunteers/spectators in this group setting would be a logistics challenge. The committee feels that due to this and the increasing positive numbers, it's in everyone's best interest to host the first ever virtual Run AJM Andrew Jackson Marathon!!
The virtual Run AJM Jackson Andrew Jackson Marathon can be done any time the week of September 7th - September 14th. It's your race, your course and your day to run for the kids of the Carl Perkins Center! Registered race participants will still receive race shirts and custom-designed finisher medals, however, we're working on that process and will have more details out soon. If you choose to defer your race entry to April 3, 2021, you will need to do so before 11:59pm August 14, 2020. Any requests to defer after the August 14, 2020 deadline will not be honored.
