Volunteer FAQ

What happens after I sign up online?
You will receive a confirmation email within three days of signing up welcoming you to the Pat’s Run Race Crew and confirming your assignment(s) as a volunteer. Two weeks prior to the race, you will receive an email with specific details regarding your responsibilities and shifts, as well as parking information and other helpful instructions.
What if I cannot attend?
Please email as soon as possible to let our volunteer coordinator know, so we can ensure your responsibilities will be re-assigned to another volunteer.
What if I cannot work the whole shift?
Once you sign up, we count on you for the full shift and cannot replace you if you leave early. At times, it may appear your area is over-staffed, but please be aware that all shifts are coordinated based on anticipated crowds. We count on each volunteer for help at the busy end of the shift. Please do not leave your post.
May I bring a friend?
Yes! We can always use extra help! Please be sure to have them register online to secure a volunteer position and Race Crew T-shirt.
How should I dress?
We recommend all volunteers wear comfortable clothes and shoes. Please dress in layers to compensate for cool to hot temperatures throughout the day. All volunteer jobs will take place outside – this includes Registration/Packet Pickup. Note: some jobs have a physical requirement; please review the job descriptions before you register.
What should I bring with me?
As little as possible. There is no storage available, so you will have to carry any items you bring with you. Most areas will have a place to set down your belongings, but it will not be secure. We strongly recommend wearing a backpack or leaving your personal items in your car.
Can children volunteer?
The official age for an unaccompanied child to volunteer is 16. The Pat’s Run committee wants to ensure the safety of all volunteers. Please direct any questions regarding children to the volunteer coordinator at
Do volunteers get a discount on race entry fees or a complimentary entry
Pat’s Run is the signature annual fundraiser for the Pat Tillman Foundation, and entry discounts for the run are not offered. Event proceeds after expenses directly support the Tillman Scholars program.
Where is the PTF Tempe office located?
The PTF Tempe office is located on ASU’s campus at Old Main (400 E. Tyler Mall, Tempe, AZ 85281).
