Historical Info on what Pat’s Run is all about: The Pat Tillman Run – in honor of Pat Tillman; local (ASU) college football legend, and rising NFL star for the AZ Cardinals. In May 2002 he chose to serve his country instead of continuing his football career. In April of 2004, while deployed in Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, he made the ultimate sacrifice for his country.
This will be the 19th year of the Pat’s Run, to honor his legacy and support the Pat Tillman Foundation, who’s mission it is “…to carry forward that legacy by giving military service members, veterans and spouses who embody those principles the educational tools and support to reach their fullest potential as leaders, no matter how they choose to serve.”

We are challenging all Wolfpack members to dust off their go-fasters and run the 19th edition of Pat’s Run. If you’re able to get to Tempe, AZ on April 15th, 2023, you can run with the group. For those not able to get to Tempe, you can still join the Wolfpack Team and run in one of the many locations around the country that hold a simultaneous Honor Run.
Run, walk or crawl the damn 4.2 miles in any fashion you can, just don’t quit. This is a 4.2 mile run, in honor of his jersey number while playing football at ASU (#42) and the run finishes on the 42 yard line on the field, inside Sun Devil Stadium.
Get your ass to Tempe, AZ (or wherever you may be running it virtually) by April 15th, 2023 – and then run the race. Race Start Time and other race details can be found here: https://runsignup.com/Race/AZ/Tempe/PatsRun
The association will be creating an event specific tech shirt you’ll be able to purchase from the association’s online store. Highly recommended to get yourself one, it’ll be the uniform of the day.
A post-operation debrief, for all that completed the 4.2 mile event, will start with a round of Guinness. The original plan was to hold the de-brief at one of Pat Tillman’s favorite hangouts near ASU; Rula Bula. But this hangout closed last June, so an alternate location will be identified and shared. Regardless of where, the first round (and only the first round, you thirsty bastards) will be provided by Dave Shields (B Co., ’92-‘96). After that initial round, you’re on your own.
When registering, we have setup a Wolfpack Team for you to join; just select ‘3rd LAR Wolfpack’ from the pulldown menu.
