Each year, PTEF is proud to host a run to honor the legacy of Coach Tom Hathaway, Perry  Township cross-country and track coach and mentor to hundreds of runners in the Indianapolis  community. This year’s event will be a 10k, 5k & 1-Mile* Run.

Please consider being a part of this event. Choose to run or become a very valuable volunteer. There’s something for everyone!


The late Tom Hathaway ran 131 marathons, many half-marathons, and countless other races.  At age 79, he was the oldest finisher at the inaugural Running South event. He accomplished  the feat of running one marathon in each state, gaining him entry into the 50 States Marathon Club. He would often win his age group. Tom taught and coached cross-country and track in  Perry Township Schools for 46 years, most of the time at Southport High School; taught track  and field at IUPUI for 5 years; coached and taught at University of Indianapolis for more than 8  years and taught KLA mini and marathon classes for over 30 years.  Please visit the Coach Hathaway Memorial in Perry Stadium and the Wall of Fame Dedication in  the sports atrium.
