TEMPE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5)-- Pat's Run is the latest Valley event that will cancel in-person interaction due to the coronavirus outbreak.
The Pat Tillman Foundation announced Saturday that Pat’s Run 2020 is going virtual on Saturday, April 18. Instead of gathering in Tempe, the organization is encouraging the public to run 4.2 miles individually.
"In this uncertain environment, the mission will go on," Pat Tillman Foundation said in a statement. 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."
"Let’s show our strength in a challenging time and also support Tillman Scholars. The mission will go on." The foundation said registered runners will still receive a Pat’s Run 2020 medal and a commemorative t-shirt.
