Under starter’s orders for the 2019 Knowle Fun Run

Solihull Editorial 28th Jan, 2019   0

FUN runners are being asked to dust down their shoes ready for this year’s Knowle Fun Run.

The Knowle and Dorridge Lions has opened the website for entries to encourage runners to start training early and get their friends and colleagues to join them for the annual event on Sunday May 19.

Runners of all ages will once again be able to choose between 10k over two extended laps or 5k one lap.

Runners will be junior or adult and may run as individuals or in a team of up to four people.

The Lions have nominated Sepsis UK Trust and Solihull Life Opportunities (SoLO) as the chosen charities for this year’s run and as usual they will donate 30 per cent of everything to local causes.

Organiser Adrian Harris 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.”

The Lions are also seeking corporate sponsors and advertisers to cover costs and volunteers.
