Arizona First Responder and Military Memorial Motorcycle Runs
Registration – Only one registration entitles you entry into all three runs and barbecues.
Our Annual First Responder Memorial Motorcycle Runs consists of runs throughout Arizona on the third Saturday of September in Northern Arizona, the third Saturday of October in Southern Arizona, and the first Saturday of November in Central Arizona. We conclude each run with a memorial ceremony at the barbecue for those First Responders who made the ultimate sacrifice while protecting the citizens of Arizona and our country.
Our 2021 runs will occur on September 18 in Northern Arizona; October 16 in Southern Arizona and on October 6 in Central Arizona.
Our definition of a First Responder is somewhat different than most. We define a First Responder as all local, county, state and federal law enforcement to include corrections and probation officers; firefighters, either governmental or private emergency medical personnel, military personnel, highway zone workers and tow truck operators.
We realize there is an Arizona and National Memorial for fallen First Responders; however, our goals are quite different. We strive to build on the camaraderie between agencies, pay it forward by raise money for charities who support First Responders and their families who are seriously injured or killed in the line of duty, and to never allow our fallen to be forgotten.
The charity organization we support is the 100 Club of Arizona.
We encourage all agencies, either governmental or privately owned, who have had a line of duty death to develop their own routes, hold their own memorial ceremonies on the day of our runs, then meet us at a predetermined location, join in our runs and enjoy the barbecues we host.
