The Buddy Run is going virtual this year!  Nothing can stop us from presenting the 10th Annual Buddy Run 5K.

We all love Buddy Baseball and the chance to support this incredible organization that provides kids with special needs the opportunity to play ball!  With social gathering restrictions due to the COVID-19 issue, we are taking the event virtual.  This allows people from all over the country to participate so sign up and refer your friends and family!  Referrals can even lead to registration rebates.

Without a physical location this year, we will be asking runners to participate during the FIRST HALF of November.  Posting your time is encouraged but not mandatory.  After the race, you will receive an awesome long sleeve tech running shirt and a special 10th Anniversary medal after the event closes.  See picture of the shirts below!

The Buddy Run is put on by Congregation Beth Am Tampa and benefits Buddy Baseball, a non-competitive recreational league for boys and girls with special needs based in Temple Terrace, FL.  Each player is paired with a “Buddy” to assist the player as needed.  The league fosters friendships and breaks down barriers.  Buddy Baseball is an opportunity like no other for children with special needs.  Not only do the players experience the thrill of participating, they also get to experience team play and camaraderie.  The Buddy Run is the largest fundraiser of Buddy Baseball and helps keep participant costs affordable for all.

Referral Program

Once you register you will receive a unique referral link that will allow you to share with your friends, family, coworkers, ANYONE!  If you get three people to run, you receive a refund of up to $15 as our way of thanking you for spreading the word about this great race supporting Buddy Baseball!
