The 18th 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 as we are expecting another sell out!

As race day approaches, here are some things you will need to know!

April 23 is race day! Gates open at 5:30 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 will be sent to you starting the first week of April. You must have registered by March 31, 2022, 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. For Team Packet Pick Ups, you must arrive April 15 between 9am and 5pm. Individual and family pack pick up times will be held April 20 through April 22 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.
