Pat’s Run FAQs
Do I have to register online?
Yes, all registrations for the 16th Annual Pat’s Run must be completed online. There is no mail-in registration form available for this race.
How do I register multiple people in one transaction?
Follow the steps for registration in the registration portal for a single runner. At the end of this registration, you will see an orange button giving you the option to “Add new entry.” Click this button to enter the next runner on your transaction. This option is also available in the Kids Run registration process. The waiver form for each participant is the responsibility of that participant and/or the parent or guardian of minor-aged participants.
Can I get a refund for my registration fee?
Entry fees are non-refundable and entries are non-transferable. No exceptions. This means that once your entry has been received, you will not receive a refund, even if you cannot participate, and you may not give or sell your entry to another individual. If you are unable to attend on race day – we can change your entry to T-shirt only and mail your race shirt to you after the event.
Where can I pick up my race materials?
Packet Pick-up is available April 15-17 in the parking lot north of Sun Devil Stadium (accessible via Rio Salado Drive). Packets include your race shirt, race number, timing tag and official race program. *Teams with 10 members or more have the option to request an early consolidated packet pickup for the entire team on Friday, April 17, 2020.

Visit the Pat’s Run packet pickup area at Packard Drive and Rio Salado (prior to race start) or the race shirt booth located in the Finish Line Expo (following the race).
Can someone else pick up my race packet for me?
Yes, provided that they have your name and race number (this number is assigned the week before the race and is available online or can be looked up at packet pickup tent). They will need to initial a participant roster noting that they picked up your packet.
Is my race fee 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 Tillman Scholar program. Tillman Scholars are military service members, veterans and spouses who carry forward Pat’s legacy through their work to impact their communities. PTF provides academic scholarships and professional development opportunities for the Tillman Scholar community.
Are registration discounts available?
There are no registration discounts available. Pat’s Run entry fees cover basic expenses associated per person participating in the event. Event proceeds after expenses directly support the Pat Tillman Foundation and the Tillman Scholar program. Registration fees for Pat’s Run run on a tiered pricing structure. The closer to the race date you register, the more expensive your registration will be.
Is Pat's Run timed?
State-of-the-art ChronoTrack systems will be used to record participants’ times at the start and at the finish. The ChronoTrack system uses a UHF RFID disposable tag, called a Bib Tag, which allows you to walk away from the finish without the need to have your tag collected. The ChronoTrack timing Bib-Tag will be attached to your race number. The Bib Tag will be labeled with a number that matches your race number. When you pick up your race number, please make sure these numbers match, and also verify that YOUR name is printed on the number you are issued. Proceed to the Solutions Table if any of the information is incorrect. Your timing tag should remain attached to the bib and pinned to the front of the runner’s outfit. Please follow the instructions provided in your registration packet. PLEASE NOTE: All participants must wear the ChronoTrack timing Bib-tag on your Race shirt or shorts for your time to be recorded. Race Results will be posted at www.patsrun.com in realtime.

Where is the start line?
The 4.2 walk/run start line is on Packard Drive just south of Rio Salado. Participants will be assigned starting corrals based on the estimated finish time they provided during registration.
What is a wave start?
In order to alleviate congestion at the race start, along the course and at the finish, there will be a rolling wave start to begin this year’s race. Participants will be staged in corrals based on the anticipated finish times provided during registration and will be released at predetermined intervals in order to enhance the overall participant experience. It is important that you adhere to your assigned corral for the safety of all participants.
Where can I sign up on race day?
Pat’s Run is anticipated to sell out before race day, and there will be no registration opportunities once the race reaches capacity. Registration for the 0.42 mile Kids Run will be open on race day.
Can children participate in the 4.2 mile run/walk?
Yes, however children participating in the 4.2 mile race must be registered for this event. The entry fee is the same for adults and children. Kids registered for the 4.2 mile event will receive the official technical race shirt, race number and timing tag. Children may participate in both the 4.2 mile and 0.42 mile Kids Run, but must register separately for each event.
My child is registered for the Kids Run, can I run alongside them?
Yes. A parent may accompany children in the 0.42 mile Kids Run and are welcome to carry the littlest ones to finish line. Course marshals will line the Kids Run route to ensure the safety of all participants.
Can children of varying ages run the Kids Run together?
For the safety of all Kids Run participants, children are staged in start-line corrals by age (age groups will be assigned different colored race bibs), with the 12 year olds going first and the 0-4 year olds going last. Older children may start in later corrals, but younger children may not move up in corrals to be with older siblings. A group/family of children must start in the youngest child’s assigned corral.
Can I leave my children in the Kids Corner while I run the 4.2 mile race?
Children may NOT be left unattended in the Kids Corner at any time. Please plan to have a family member or friend stay with your child(ren) at all times.
Are strollers allowed on the race course?
Strollers are welcome at Pat’s Run. For the safety of all participants, and to ease congestion on the race course, participants who plan to walk with a stroller must start in Corral 28, regardless of what number is listed on your race bib. If you plan to run the course with a stroller, there is a designated running stroller corral directly behind Corral 12.
Will there be lockers or storage areas?
No lockers or a bag check are provided at Pat’s Run. We suggest bringing minimal items to the race.
