The 19th Annual Pat’s Run, presented by TEKsystems is right around the corner! This year, we are thrilled to be back in Tempe as we take on this 4.2 mile challenge. There is still time to secure your spot, but don’t wait! We are nearly 90% sold out!

As race day approaches, here are some things you will need to know! This information can also all easily be found in our downloadable 2023 Pats Run Program Book!

April15 is race day! Gates open at 6:00 a.m., and corrals will be opened at 6:30 a.m. Arrive early! Wheelchair participants begin at 7 a.m., and the 4.2 Mile Run / Walk begins at 7:05 a.m. The Kids’ Run will kick off at 10 a.m.

As always, the race track will take you on a journey through the streets of Tempe, ending inside none other than Sun Devil Stadium! Check out the full course map to the left.

If you opted into a bib mailer, your Race Shirt, Race Bib and other merchandise have started to be shipped! You must have registered by March 20, 2023, to take advantage of this option. You will receive a confirmation email with a tracking number when your bib is mailed out, if you choose this option.

Didn’t opt in for a bib mailer or are past the deadline? Not a problem! Here is how you can pick up your goods prior to race day. The packet pick-up tent is located at the bottom of the northeast staircase of Sun Devil Stadium. Parking will be available of the west of the tent. Individual and family pack pick up times will be held April 12 through April 14 from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m.

Bib numbers correspond to corral numbers and will be assigned baed on estimated time or past finish times. Your bib number will be emailed once assigned, be on the look out prior to packet pickup! Wheelchair participants will begin at the start of the first corral; those running or walking with strollers will be assigned placement at the back of the race.
