NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis will be title sponsor of next year's Country Music Marathon in Nashville.

A team representing the hospital will participate in order to raise money for children's cancer research.

The 26.2-mile marathon has been held for 12 years. More than 30,000 runners and walkers compete, and organizers bill it as Tennessee's largest running event.

Next year's race is April 28 through parts of downtown.
