This May OPDC researchers took to the track to take part in the Oxford Fun Run, a 5 km run in Oxford University Parks.

The team ran the Oxford Fun Run in support of Parkinson's UK with varying degrees of competitiveness. Our Team winner, PhD student Ben Hunn, finishing in under 20 minutes.

We were joined by a great team from Masud Husain's lab, also running for Parkinson's UK.

Chair of the Oxford Parkinson's UK branch, Sally Bromley, also led a team round the course who between them exceeded the 5 km race course winning a special achievment trophy for their impressive effort.
