Their amazing commitment to train and fundraise helps St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital move forward with its bold plan to accelerate research and lifesaving treatment of childhood cancer and other catastrophic diseases and fulfill our founder Danny Thomas’s promise that no child should die in the dawn of life.”
 
The 2021 St. Jude IRONMAN 70.3 Memphis triathlon saw nearly 1,700 athletes start the race. Competitors ranged in age from 19-75 years old. The event led athletes along a 1.2-mile swim, 56-mile bike and 13.1-mile run throughout southwestern. The competition started with a point-to-point swim in Hyde Lake before athletes embarked on the single-loop bike course that ventured through the rolling hills of Fayette County. The two-loop run course took athletes around scenic Hyde Lake and onto the popular Chickasaw Trail before finishing at Shelby Farms Park. The event offered a professional prize purse of $50,000 as well as age-group qualifying slots to the 2022 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship held in St. George, Utah.
