Honor Pat’s Legacy on April 18, 2020
Pat’s Run is the signature fundraising event to support the Pat Tillman Foundation’s
Tillman Scholar program.
In this uncertain environment, the mission will go on. Pat’s Run 2020 is going virtual. We are prioritizing the health and safety of our runners, volunteers, and staff and are responding to guidance from health and governmental officials.
On the morning of Saturday, April 18, instead of gathering to run the streets of Tempe, we encourage you to run 4.2 miles individually, wherever you are. Different streets. Same day. Same mission. This is a chance to show our strength in a challenging time, and a chance to get out of the house to run with our virtual community across Arizona and the country.
Registered runners will still receive a Pat’s Run 2020 medal and a commemorative t-shirt. (Details on local and non-local medal/t-shirt fulfillment to come.) In the meantime, we want to see you running on Instagram, mapping on Strava, cheering for other runners and showing your passion for the Pat Tillman Foundation and the veterans and military spouses we all support. By joining us in this virtual run, you are supporting our community of more than 600 Tillman Scholars, making their transition to their second act of service in healthcare, business, law, policy, education, and the humanities. If you’re unable to run remotely with us, we’ve also created an option for you to donate your registration to the Pat Tillman Foundation.
Commit to running individually on April 18 – in our Pat’s Run virtual community – or by donating to the foundation. With your support and the support of our partner community led by TEK Systems, the mission will go on.

Pat’s Run FAQs
What if I don't want to participate in the virtual run or I don't want to donate my registration to the Pat Tillman Foundation?
We completely understand if you are no longer interested in participating in the virtual run and if you don’t want your t-shirt and medal, we will refund your registration. You can initiate the refund process by following the steps HERE.
Will I still receive my race T-shirt, bib and medal?
Traditionally, a group of hundreds of stellar volunteers have made mass delivery of race items possible. As shelter-in-place orders are implemented around the country and we are unable to utilize our volunteers, we are working to get race items to registered participants by race week. We will continue to update our FAQs and social media platforms with shipment information to provide the most accurate details to our dedicated community. We appreciate your patience with us as we navigate these unprecedented times.
How come Pat's Run decided to go virtual this year?
Quite simply, COVID-19. Understanding that the health of our community is our top priority, we thought the idea of a virtual run – which eliminates a concentration of high numbers of runners that health and government officials have restricted – still provides our community with a way to support Pat’s legacy and the mission of the Pat Tillman Foundation. So let’s get outside and run!
Is my Pat’s Run entry fee tax deductible?
Per IRS regulations, individual registration fees for the event are not tax-deductible (due to goods and services received). Please note, any donations or pledges over and above the registration fee are tax-deductible. All Team Tillman Pat’s Run donations are tax-deductible.
What does Pat's Run support?
Pat’s Run is the signature annual fundraiser for the Pat Tillman Foundation. Proceeds from Pat’s Run directly support the Foundation’s Tillman Scholars program. Tillman Scholars are veterans, active service members and their spouses who are committed to service and community. Tillman Scholarships can be used at academic institutions across the country.
