From the Race Director
Welcome to Bud's Run 2015!
We are eagerly planning the 12th and final official year of Bud's Run, a 5K Run/Walk that remembers Bud Swanson and raises funds for the Sarcoma Foundation of America. We also wish to remember and honor others that we know who have "moved on" as a result of sarcoma.  But, let me be clear that this race event is a celebration.  Bud loved to run and to race and he loved coaching runners.  Bud's Run is a joyous gathering of runners, friends of runners, and those who understand that life is precious and deserves celebration every day.

We will continue the 1K Fun Run for children 12 and under.  We will also have the "Budding Runner" event for those 5 and under; this is a very popular and very lively activity that parents can join in the fun with their little runner. (We have kid sized shirts.)

Please come and join us for our 12th and final official Bud's Run; you will have fun and you will add to the value of the day.  100% of the proceeds after paying our expenses are given to the Sarcoma Foundation of America.

If you have a special memory during our 12 years of Bud's Run 5k, or a short narrative to share about Bud, please send them to our webmaster at  We will feature them on the webpage and our social media channels as the 2015 race gets closer.  To thank you for sharing, we'll add something special to your race bag.

Good luck with your training!
Sharon Swanson,
Race Director
