We are delighted to welcome the Mayor of the West Midlands Andy Street who will be setting runners on their way as well as awarding the winners prizes

“I am thrilled to support this year’s Knowle Fun Run, which many will know continues to be the biggest & most popular Fun Run in Solihull raising vital funds for local good causes. I pay tribute to the Knowle and Dorridge Lions for putting in the hours needed to organise such a popular event, which has become a key part of our community.

This year the charities which stand to benefit are SoLO Life Opportunities (SoLO), the UK Sepsis Trust, as well as other Lions locally determined causes. All are worthy of our support.

In 2018, the number of participants was close to 1800 so let’s hope this year is even better still! It is a wonderful way to bring our community together, get people active, have fun, meet new people and, of course, raise funds for two extremely worthwhile causes.

I wish all of you a successful day and I look forward to seeing you on the starting line raring to go!”

Andy Street
