Register for the St. Joe River Marathon, 1/2 Marathon or 5k Today!


Gleaming jet boats, boasting high-powered engines, have arrived in St. Maries and all the talk is of the races, the boats and the events surrounding the first annual Race the Joe!

But in the excitement and hubbub of the jet boats, don’t forget to register for the third annual St. Joe River Marathon June 9 in St. Maries. The registration deadline to receive a shirt is Monday, May 20. However, runners can register through race day.

Not a runner? Walkers are also welcome to join for the marathon, half marathon or 5K race.

The St. Joe River Marathon is a non-profit group that gives runners fabulous race experience while spotlighting the community of St. Maries and the beauty of the St. Joe River Valley.

The money raised by the race will benefit local families dealing the devastating financial effects of cancer.  It’s a great effort for a cause close the hearts of race organizers.

And don’t forget the second annual SuperKid River Run June 8. Kids up to 12 years old will enjoy a 1.2 mile run along the beautiful St. Joe River.  This event will take place the day before the St. Joe River Marathon.

Each finisher will receive a race t-shirt and a root beer float provided by Harvest Foods after the race.  We encourage parents or other runners to run with their children.  Registration will be available until 9:30 a.m. on the day of the race.  This event will start and finish at the Cormana Building (10th Street and Idaho Avenue) in St. Maries.

We hope this event will help children get excited about being outdoors and staying in shape, and we can’t wait to see all the little runners!

Yes St. Maries has some great things in store during the coming months, and the jet boat races are just the beginning.
