It’s not too late to make a New Year’s resolution, get out your running shoes, get fit and enter this year’s 36th Knowle Fun Run on Sunday 19 May now. 


Knowle and Dorridge Lions have already opened their website with a new entry system for runners wanting to commit now to running the 2 laps 10 km or 1 lap 5 km through the traffic-free roads of Knowle. Entries opened a little later this year whilst the Lions introduced a new entry system. So now is the time to encourage runners to start training and get their friends and colleagues to join them, perhaps make up a team of 4 runners.

‘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,’ says organiser Lion Adrian Harris. ‘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 Sepsis UK Trust and SoLO Life Opportunities with half of all proceeds being retained for local causes.

In addition to the 5 & 10km Fun Runs with individual as well as team trophies to be won, there will be 4 Kids runs around Arden playing fields for each of school years 1 to 4. 

Already the Lions are busy planning for the day, seeking corporate sponsors and advertisers to cover costs and volunteers to make the event its usual great success.
