PHOENIX — Pat’s Run will return in-person to Tempe later this month after two years of virtual-only events due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 18th annual 4.2 mile run/walk celebrating the legacy of Pat Tillman will be on April 23 and start at 7 a.m. at Sun Devil Stadium. Gates open at 5:30 a.m.

Registration for the in-person event ends April 18, with virtual registration open through April 24.

All Pat’s Run participants will get a T-shirt and medal. The registration fee is $62 for those participating in-person, $42 virtually and $15 for the .42-mile kids’ run.

The distance is a tribute to Tillman’s uniform number, 42, when he starred for the Arizona State University football team.

Tillman also played for the Arizona Cardinals before enlisting in the U.S. Army after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. He was killed while deployed in Afghanistan on April 22, 2004.

Proceeds from Pat’s Run benefit the Pat Tillman Foundation, which provides scholarships for military veterans and their spouses.

The Pat Tillman Foundation encourages runners to join the Pat’s Run Facebook group to stay connected.

We want to hear from you.
