Team Ingram/Team Vining Race Day Updates

We are very excited about this weekend!  Make sure you pick up your race packets on Thursday or Friday.  You will not be able to do so on Saturday. 

For those of you who don’t know, Ingram has decided to run the 5k.  So if you want to run with him or if you can get to the Team Ingram Tent to root him on, he’s going to need the boost!  Once he finishes, we will all come back to the tent to cheer for the half- and full-marathoners.

11:00am – 6:00pm  Race packet pickup and expo at Cook Convention Center

11:00am – 8:00pm  Race packet pickup and expo at Cook Convention Center
6:00pm – 8:00pm  Invitation Only Pasta Party at Cook Convention Center (for those of you attending, wear some Team Ingram / Team Vining gear if you have any!)

7:00am  Team Ingram / Team Vining Picture in front of doors to FedEx Forum
7:15am   5k Starts (anyone who wants to run with Ingram, he will be starting near where we take pictures; he will be running about an 11:30-per-mile pace)
8:00am  Marathon and Half Marathon Start

We will have a tent at Monroe and Danny Thomas.  The 5k and half-marathon will pass by us right before the finish line.  The full marathon will pass within 100 yards twice.  It is within easy walking distance of the starting line so you can watch your runner start, then walk up to the tent and wait for them to come down the finishing stretch.  It is also a good meeting point for runners and families for after the race – 200 yards from the finish line.  And we hope you’ll make a lot of noise at the tent!

  1. First year in six years I haven't been at the marathon but cheering you all on from home. My team commented on how beautiful it was to see Ingram's beautiful red hair this year!! Though we aren't personally touched by St. Jude, I'm so thankful for the support your family continues to pour out on St. Jude. Watching your kids grow each year at the banquet has given them a special place in our hearts!
