Over the past 3 years Bud's Run and Bash has 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 finisher's 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.
