Honor Pat Tillman in Tempe This Weekend

Real Estate Agent with Realty Executives

Pat Tillman was one of the most incredible athletes to wear Maroon and Gold. Tens of thousands of people proudly participate in Pat’s Run each year to honor this fallen soldier. Pat Tillman was tragically killed in Afghanistan on April 22, 2004, and he defines a true American hero.

For convenience, you might want to take the METRO light rail line to Pat’s Run, there are two Tempe stations close to the starting line. The stations are probably 3/4 of a mile ( APPROXIMATELY ) from the stating line. Depending on where you park at ASU, the walk from the parking lot wouldn’t be much different. If you use the METRO park and ride lots, they are free and an all day light rail pass is just $3.50. Don’t forget to purchase your pass!

The map below shows the approximate route for Pat’s Run and it shows where the two closest light rail stations are located. (You can also print a copy of the route.)

You can also use this map of the light rail line and the park and ride locations.
