The Patriot Run is a 10k, 5k and 1 mile run fundraiser that benefits the Central Arizona Honor Guard and helps to support the mission to "Honor the Fallen, and Honor the Flag". It takes place in September during Patriot Week at the Prescott Valley Civic Center and the Prescott Valley Healing Field of Northern Arizona with the 3000 flag memorial for all who perished on 9/11.
In the aftermath of the tragedy of the Yarnell Hill fire and the loss of the 19 Granite Mountain Hotshots in June 2013, the then Central Arizona Fire Honor Guard wanted to pay it forward to the Fire Families across the Nation and the World that came to pay their respects to our Fire families. The Patriot Run is a way to honor that memory and fund the Honor Guard's trip to Colorado Springs in September for the annual Fallen Firefighter Memorial Ceremony.
The Patriot Run is tentatively scheduled for
Saturday, September 11, 2021.
