Organisers of the Solihull’s ever popular community fundraising event, the Knowle Fun Run, are expecting the usual last minute scramble for places for the 31st Knowle Fun Run which is on Sunday 18th May this year.

Whilst the Fun Run is not until Sunday 18th May Knowle and Dorridge Lions have to close entries early on Sunday 11th May to ensure they receive the runners timing chips and numbers in time.

This year’s event, which will see Don Maclean get the runners underway and present the prizes, will raise funds for the Brain Tumour Charity, VisionCare & Northleigh House as well as local causes. The Lions hope that individuals as well as companies have been getting their efforts sponsored and hope to raise over £40,000 for these worthy causes.

This year there will be 4 Mini Runs for those under 9 years olds in Years 1-4 from 11:00 followed by the main event at 12:00 at Arden Academy and as usual we shall close the course to traffic for the 2 hours of the Fun Run, 11.45am to 2pm. Please see our website for details of the road closures. Usually huge crowds line the roads create a fantastic atmosphere which attracts many new runners every year,’ says organiser Lion Noel Kinahan. ‘As usual we shall be welcoming runners from all over the country, not just the Midlands. Get online now at to complete your entry’
