Join Team Tillman

Go the Distance for a Team with Purpose

Team Tillman is our community of everyday athletes who bring their passion for endurance events, like marathons and half-marathons, triathlons or biking, together with their passion for making a positive impact in the world. Members of Team Tillman who meet fundraising minimums earn exclusive benefits and limited-edition merchandise from the Pat Tillman Foundation, as well as a community of supporters to cheer them on as they strive to challenge themselves.

Pat spent his life pushing the limits. His achievements on the football field are well known, but his commitment to challenging himself extended beyond football in his off-season, running marathons, doing half-marathon triathlons and cliff diving. We created Team Tillman as another way for those who love to push their limits to honor Pat’s legacy and support the Tillman Scholars who carry on his values today.

What is a Tillman Honor Run?

A Tillman Honor Run is a 4.2 mile family-friendly, in-person, walk/run that takes place in various cities around the country. They are held in partnership with ASU Alumni Chapters.

Yep, we’re back.

But what if I can't get to Tempe?

Not to worry! Pat’s Run will also be open to virtual participants.

As a virtual runner, what should I use to track my miles and report them?

Miles will be tracked through your Run Sign Up registration.  Use whatever tracker app you like and add your miles using your virtual bib number.

Virtual runners will receive their items via mail. In-person participants can pick their bib, shirt, and additional purchased items at in-person packet pickup in the days prior to Pat’s Run. In-person participants can also choose to pay $10.00 to have their add-ons, bib, and shirt mailed to them prior to race day. Please note: if you are registering multiple participants in one order, you will need to select the bib mailer for each participant. You must register with this add-on by March 8 to take advantage of this option.

Please follow these links to see size chart:

How come I got charged per registration for shipping and handling even though multiple items were sent to the same household?
