Course and road closures

This year the route will remain unchanged from last.

There will be 3 water stations but please remember to bring a bottle to carry yourself


The Knowle Fun Run has been running for over 35 years with an exemplary safety record. Let’s keep it that way

The Police and Solihull Council require that runners and traffic should not share the roads at the same time during the Fun Run

Between 11:45 am and 2:00 pm all traffic entering Knowle, from all directions, will be subject to a diversion

Movement of vehicles in, out or within the Fun Run zone will be prohibited

During this time you should make preparatory or alternative arrangements as appropriate

Click on the map to see which roads will be closed and the location and direction of the diversions. These have been kept to an absolute minimum to limit disruption and inconvenience for residents. All have been agreed with the Police and Council

During the period of road closures our local bus services will be using the designated diversions which are shown on the attached map. Full details are available on

We recognise that residents, businesses and visitors alike may be inconvenienced during the run. We apologise in advance for this. We shall re-open the roads just as soon as it is safe to do so.

If you foresee issues or difficulties arising for you from these arrangements  contact us  now and we will get back to you as soon as practical.
