Thank You for Being Part of Pat’s Run 2021

Pat’s Run 2021, presented by TEKsystems, is the signature fundraiser for the Pat Tillman Foundation’s Tillman Scholars program. Between April 24 and April 26, more than 20,000 runners and walkers across the world donned their shirts and shoes and put 4.2 miles in to celebrate the legacy of Pat Tillman and our Tillman Scholars. 

We are so grateful to everyone for their support. You proved that we’re one community, with one mission.

 

Limited Edition Merchandise

All participants who registered for the 4.2 mile run / walk will receive a 2021 bib, t-shirt and medal. Kids’ Run participants will get a ribbon instead of a medal.

Extremely limited quantities of the 2021 Pat’s Run official race shirts and gold iconic tees will be available in the PTF shop later this year. 

 

Pat’s Run FAQs

What Is Pat's Run?

Pat’s Run is the signature fundraiser for the Pat Tillman Foundation’s Tillman Scholars program. In partnership with the City of Tempe, Arizona State University and our presenting sponsor TEKsystems, we’ve made a joint decision to hold Pat’s Run virtually on April 24, 2021 to prioritize the health and safety of our runners, our volunteers and the community that continues to support education and leadership development for Tillman Scholars.

When Will I Receive My 2021 Pat’s Run T-shirt, Bib and Medal?

We began shipping race packets in mid-March in order of registration. You will receive a tracking notification to the email you used during registration when your race packet ships. Thank you for your support!

  • Ship by household: You can have your race packets shipped to your household, rather than individually. So if two people from the same family register, we can send your race packets together.
  • Mail tracking: You will be sent a tracking number as soon as your packet ships so you can see where it is. 
  • Shipping costs: Shipping and handling will be a flat fee: $6 per registrant in the U.S., $11 CAN / MX and $20 elsewhere in the world

 

How Can I Track the Event? And What's RaceJoy?

 

This year, we will be using the RaceJoy app, which allows us to create a more personalized and fuller race experience. You’ll be able to send cheers to others running or walking Pat’s Run, hear from sponsors and special guests along the course and more! We will be sending details on how to download and use RaceJoy to all registrants in early April.

When Is Pat's Run?

Pat’s Run official festivities will take place on April 24, 2021 at 7:05am MST. But we understand the benefits of flexibility in a virtual run, so you can participate and submit your virtual results anytime between the dates of April 23 and April 25, 2021.

What Is the Pat's Run Challenge Series?

New for 2021! Pat’s Run has expanded to include a three-race challenge series: Pat’s Run, a virtual Pat’s Run Challenge 10K and a virtual Pat’s Run 42 in 40 Challenge, in which participants commit to running, walking or hiking 42 miles in 40 days between Oct. 3 and Veterans Day. Participants will get a t-shirt and medal for each event in the challenge and those who complete all three get a special giveaway after finishing all three.

Why Is Pat's Run Virtual?

In partnership with the City of Tempe, Arizona State University and our presenting sponsor TEKsystems, we’ve made a joint decision to hold Pat’s Run virtually on April 24, 2021. Given the rising of COVID-19 rates in Arizona, decisions by similar-sized races and advice from our local, state and university public safety advisors, we made this decision to prioritize the health and safety of our runners, our volunteers and the community that continues to support education and leadership development for Tillman Scholars.

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.

What Do I Do If I Haven't Received My 2020 Race Packet Yet?

First, we are very sorry to hear this! We can ship your race packet from 2020 to you; please contact us at [email protected] and we’ll work with you.
