REGISTRATION BELOW -  After logging in the site

From 2019, the UP Sports Office has been hosting this 15-year-old charity event in Pécs, which is uniquely supplemented this year by a jubilee university sports day co-organized by the UP Athletics Club.

The primary objective of the Sports Office team is to allocate all the funds collected from the run to support the patients of a foundation. This year, the beneficiary of the charity run is the EURAKVILO Pediatric Oncology and Children's Hospice Public Benefit Foundation.

On September 9th, join us to run, jog, walk, or even bring a pram or your dog, all for a good cause in Pécs.

In addition to university citizens, all residents of Pécs are welcome to participate in the event.
