About

Welcome to Knowle and Dorridge Running Club. We have just over 200 members of mixed abilities, and are based at Knowle Football Club, Hampton Road, Knowle, B93 0NX.

The K&D ethos is very much about being a Club for All. What we are not is stuffy or elitist! You will find us to be a warm welcoming bunch where you can enjoy your running whether wanting to compete or keep fit with friends!

The spirit of K&D was captured beautifully in an article Runners World did featuring one of our members. Click HERE to read.

So if you are looking for a friendly Running Club in Solihull, Knowle or Dorridge please get in touch. We will be quite happy to welcome you along to try us out!

Club night is Wednesday at 7:30pm. We run in groups on road / cross country runs for all abilities generally covering at least 5 miles. On the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month our England Athletics Qualified Run Leaders organise different sessions which are posted in advance HERE.

Our Friday morning session starts at 9:15am and is targetted mainly for beginners. This involves a gentle warm-up by jogging down to a local park and some group stretching exercises.

Many of our beginners have progressed quickly and are now running 5k, 10k and half-marathons!

Check out the Training Page for more information on our Club Runs.

On Sunday mornings, we usually go for longer runs of between 8 and 12 miles. These are not at a fixed time, but are arranged each week by interested members.

If you are running in Solihull, running in Knowle or running in Dorridge and would like some company, or want to train to improve with runners of your standard, then we think you’ll find Knowle and Dorridge Running Club the place to be!
