You’ve Got Pat’s Run Questions, We’ve Got Answers!

Blog | 03/06/2023

The 19th Annual Pat’s Run, presented by TEKsystems is just 6 weeks away! As we get closer to race day, we want to make sure you have all the information you need to ensure we have a safe and fun time. With questions coming in, we wanted to share some of the most commonly asked and make sure no one is left in the dust on the race course.

For additional questions, please refer to the Pat’s Run page or email [email protected].

Are dogs allowed?

Unfortunately your furry friends cannot join us on the trail, unless they are your registered service animal. Those with service dogs please contact us at [email protected] ahead of time!

Why can’t virtual participants join groups?

The group function is used for packet pickup and so those in that group can start in the same corral. Since virtual participants have tier packets mailed to them and they run on their own, the group function isn’t needed for them.

Can I move corrals?

If you would like to change corrals to run together, all participants would need to gather at the higher number corral.

  • For Example: If John and Jane Doe want to run in the same corral, they must register in the same transaction. If John registers on January 10th and Jane registers on a different date, Pat’s Run cannot guarantee that they will be assigned to the same corral. However, runners can move back to the later corral to run together. John is assigned to corral 12, Jane is assigned to corral 17, they can both start in corral 17, NOT corral 12

Are strollers, adaptive mobility, and wheelchairs allowed on the race course?

Yes, strollers are allowed on the race course. There is no time limit for those participants. Those with strollers typically start in the last corral and can take up to 2 hours to complete. Stroller riders do not need to be registered.  

Adaptive mobility chairs are allowed on the race course.  Please register both participants for the race, the person pushing the chair and the person in the chair.

Can I go back and add an Iconic Tee or limited edition Pat’s Run Hoodie once I have already registered?

Yes, you may add on either item after your registration as long as you do so by March 20, 2023. Please follow the steps below to purchase additional merchandise:

Sign In to RunSignUp > Go to your Profile > View your events under Upcoming Events > Click Manage Registration next to the registration that you are editing > Click Add-On menu item located on the top OR left of Race page.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are a virtual or Honor Run participant, you must register by March 20 to guarantee you receive race items before race day. If you are an in-person participant, you must register by March 20 to receive items by mail. After March 20, in-person participants will need to pick up their race materials during packet pickup.
