Knowle fun run open for entries

Solihull Editorial 6th Jan, 2020   0

THE KNOWLE fun run is now open for entries for the 10k on May 17.

Knowle and Dorridge Lions have opened their website for entries to this year’s 37th Knowle Fun Run at, wherer participants can commit to a 5k or 10k run, through the traffic-free roads of Knowle.

Lions President Richard Buckley said: “Anyone who has taken part in recent years will tell you about the great atmosphere of 1800 runners, many in fancy dress, being cheered on by the residents who always line the traffic-free streets.

“We hope runners commit early by entering online now and will make a donation or get their run sponsored to help raise funds to support this year’s partner charities – the Solihull Hospital Charity and CLIC Sargent with half of all proceeds being retained for local causes.

“The Lions are busy planning for the day, seeking business sponsors and advertisers to cover costs and volunteers to make the event its usual great success. We are also looking to identify a VIP to set the runners on their way and present the winners trophies. If you can help please get in touch via [email protected].”

In addition to the 5km and 10km Fun Runs with individual as well as team trophies to be won, there will be four kids runs around Arden playing fields for each of school years one to four.
