Wells City Harriers have a long tradition of organising various races and events across the area and we have helped various other community groups to ensure that their events are organised to a good standard.
LATEST: Unfortunately Covid-19 restrictions have meant the cancellation of all of the Club organised races since mid-March 2020. We were able to hold the final event of the Street 5k & junior 1k/2k races in March but there is no Series resuming in October 2020 and we will have to wait and see if we can organise a race in 2021. We had hoped that the Baltonsborough Road Race (5 mile event) traditionally held in August could be held in December 2020 but Kay Franklin, the Race Director, has concluded that is no longer possible.
The information that follows is what happens usually (but not necessarily happening due to Covid-19 restrictions)
Race The Night 5k! Our main flagship event is the Clive & Angela Thomas Street 5k Road Race Series, and accompanying 1k and 2k junior races held on the second Wednesday of every month between October and March. NOT TAKING PLACE IN 2020. When it comes back it may be possible to enter the Series on line, in advance, for best entry discount with additional discounts for England Athletics members as usual. First Timers at Street Night 5k will get an award and pb awards through the Series along with other caegory awards and spot prizes! Suitable for all abilities. Read on below.
