Bud’s Run and Bash

Start Time: 1.00pm

Location: University of Birmingham

Bud's Run

Join athletics coach Bud Baldaro, world championship silver medallist Hannah England, Luke Gunn and other athletes for a family-friendly 5K fun run. 

Over the last three years Bud's Run and Bash raised a magnificent £50,000 for Parkinson’s UK. This year the target is £70,000 in honour of the fact that 2017 will see Bud turn 70. 

Run for Parkinson's

Bud was diagnosed with Parkinson's in 2009 and wants to help raise awareness of the condition and stacks of cash to beat it. All money raised at this event will go directly towards our vital work. 

  • What: 5K fun run on closed roads inside the University campus
  • When: 2pm race start
  • How much: £18 (concessions £15, family ticket £60, corporate team £66)

All runners will receive a bespoke Bud’s Run technical T-shirt as well as a fundraising pack, sponsorship forms and a finishers medal.

The University of Birmingham’s stunning new sports facilities will provide a new home for the Bud’s Run event hub with the start and finish and event village all located here.

Find more details and register via Bud's Run Website.

As well as the 5K, there’s:

  • Under-11s run
  • Coffee, cake and snacks on sale
  • Bacon baps and beer – vital after any 5K!
  • Sports massage marquee 
  • Fantastic raffle
  • Awesome interactive team games
