KNOWLE’S fun run may be over for another year but there is still time to enter the Dorridge Run on June 13.
Local entertainer Malcolm Stent will be starting runners off at St Philip’s Church in Manor Road, Dorridge and participants will have a choice of a three or eight mile course through picturesque Warwickshire countryside.
Raising funds for Troop Aid and Marie Curie Cancer Care, the event, now in its sixth year, will see people running, walking, cycling and even rollerblading - be as imaginative as possible.
Race organiser Peter Heywood said: “Because people don’t necessarily have to run it means the event has a wide appeal and we are confidently expecting to top last year’s figures of 1,200 entrants and £20,000 raised for charity. Both serious runners and families alike can enjoy a jaunt through glorious country lanes in complete safety on roads closed to traffic.”
After the run, families can relax at the Summer Fair where there will be refreshments plus games, stalls and a live jazz band.
Staggered starts will see cyclists take off at at 10.15am and runners at 10.30am.
Entrants must register to take part . On line entry and details are available on the website www.dorridgefunrun.org. Entry on the day is possible up to 10am.
