Despite two start delays due to thunderstorms in the Memphis area, the weather cooperated and the sun peeked out on the more than 70,000 participants and spectators who turned out Saturday, Dec. 1, for the 17th St. Jude Memphis Marathon. 

The annual fundraiser for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital features a marathon, half-marathon, 5K and 10K races, and a kids marathon with routes taking runners through Downtown and Midtown Memphis. 

More than $11 million was raised for young cancer patients at this year's event.
