WellFest Run 2019

5K Race / Walk and 1-Mile Fun Run

The WellsFest 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 (ages 12 and under) start and end near the 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, Extra Table.

Plan now to join us Saturday, Sept. 28, for the 5K Race & Walk (8 a.m.), the 1 Mile Fun Run (9 a.m.) and a day of great music, food and fun at WellsFest 2019 (9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.).  

Register online or print the paper registration form and mail by 9/19/09 to

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