The City of Wells Lions were briefed at 9 am as part of an extensive team of supporters, organiser etc. to help ensure that the 2019 Wells Fun Run got underway safely.
Children from as young as two and a half were chaperoned by attentive parents for their 800-yard race. One youngster proudly wearing a race number almost covering his entire t-shirt told me ‘I’ve been 4 for a year and now I’m 5. I’ve been practising and I’m very fast’. Wow.
Running an event like this is complicated once the big boys and girls get started on their 5K and 10K races. Much of their respective routes are the same. We had to prevent one or two individuals in the middle of their 10K race from heading for the finish half way round.
However, the organisers are good and the City of Wells Lions helped ensure the event was another great success.
