"Wells Done!" Run 2018

5K Run / Walk and 1-Mile Fun Run

The "Wells Done!" Run, sponsored by Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi, has become a regular feature on the fall calendar!

The 5K race and the 1-mile fun run start and end at Smith-Wills Stadium on Lakeland Drive (next to Jamie Fowler Boyll Park, where WellsFest is held) and are directed by Mississippi Race Timing and the Mississippi Track Club.  Proceeds from the run/walk, and all WellsFest activities will go to this year's beneficiary, Growing Up Knowing: Mississippi Campaign for Teen Pregnancy Prevention.

Plan now to join us Saturday, Sept. 29, for the 5K Run & Walk (8 a.m.), the 1 Mile Fun Run (9 a.m.) and a day of great music, food and fun at WellsFest 2018 (9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.).  

Register online or print the paper registration form and mail it to

     2019 Bailey Avenue

All 5K winners will receive a unique trophy handcrafted by our friends at The Mustard Seed.
