Join us in Jackson, Tennessee to Celebrate and Make History!

Tennessee’s Oldest Marathon, the Run AJM Jackson Andrew Jackson Marathon, proudly celebrates 51 years in Jackson TN! The marathon began in 1972 as a celebration of the city’s Sesquicentennial Anniversary and eventually became an annual event, adding a half marathon along the way. The looped course offers a marathon distance (two loops) and a half marathon distance (one loop) that winds its way from beautiful downtown through historic midtown up to the Interstate and back. Come join us to help celebrate 51 years, support the Exchange Club Carl Perkins Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse and stay to see what our beautiful city has to offer.

Both races will start and finish at the West Tennessee Farmer’s Market in downtown Jackson, just a couple of blocks from public parking areas with plenty of free parking. Roads closest to the start and finish lines will be closed to thru traffic so be aware of available parking areas. As the race will be taking place on Saturday morning, the Farmer’s Market will be in full operation with food trucks and vendors offering everything from fresh vegetables, fruits, meats, dairy, baked goods, and many other items.
