Frequently Asked Questions

Can I bring my own snacks? Are there snacks or drinks on the bus? 

Yes!  Some snacks and beverages will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own food and/or non-alcoholic beverages.  

What attire should I plan for?

Casual attire and comfortable shoes both days.  Memphis temperatures are hot and there may be lots of walking.  

Can I stay at another hotel?

All Bus Trip guests MUST stay at the Hilton Garden Inn.  A specific room block link will be sent after registration is confirmed. For safety and logistics purposes, we cannot provide transportation to multiple locations.  The ONLY exception is if a Bus Trip Guest is staying in the same room as a Runner.  In this instance, luggage and transportation will be arranged on a case-by-case basis, determined closer to the event date.  Please communicate which hotel you will be staying at with the Bus Trip Host – Kelly Schneider. 

If I know a Memphis to Peoria Runner, can I experience the St. Jude Campus with them?

Runners and Bus Trip passengers will experience the St. Jude campus at the same time. After the Runner send-off, Bus Trip passengers will board the bus to head back to Peoria.
