Nearly 30,000 runners and walkers celebrated the 10th anniversary of Pat's Run Saturday morning.
Saturday's 4.2 mile race in downtown Tempe, honoring NFL star turned soldier Pat Tillman, first began in 2004. Tillman grew up in San Jose and attended Leland High School.
The run started and ended at Arizona State University's Sun Devil Stadium.
The route's length is inspired by the football jersey number he sported while playing for ASU.
In 2002, Tillman put his career with the Arizona Cardinals on hold to join the elite Army Rangers.
He died by friendly fire in Afghanistan in April 2004.
Proceeds from the annual race go toward scholarships for military veterans and their spouses.
