Meet the 2017 Team UC in the Westminster 10K

AliHasan Headshot

Name: Ali Hasan Butt

Campus: UC Berkeley

Hometown: Rawalpindi, Pakistan

Ali is originally from Pakistan, and has been based in London since 2011. He has been the Co-President of the Berkeley Haas Alumni Network UK Chapter since January 2017, and is very keen on expanding ties with the broader UC Alumni UK Network this year!

Ali hasn't participated in any running event in the last 30 odd years, and most of the running he has done in his life has been on a cricket pitch, on a tennis/squash/badminton court, or while trying to catch a train in London! A 10K is a lot of meters to run in one go, but he thinks it's worth a shot!

Having attended Berkeley-Haas as a Fulbright Scholar, he has first-hand experience to the life-altering impact of study abroad, and loves the opportunity to contribute to this great cause!
