Reg Wells

Sad to report that Reg Wells has passed-on after some years of poor health.  Now West-Country based Reg had held key positions within race walking :

RWA Chairman 1988-89, RWA General Secretary 1984-88, RWA Treasurer 1983-84 & Championship Secretary 1976-78.   He served as Honoray Secretary of the Essex County Athletic Association 1972-75.  Reg was known for his coaching abilities and his knowledge of race walking was such that he was appointed GB Walking Team Manager on a number of occasions.

He did all this honorary work despite his demanding full-time empoyment.   Walks' attenders can recall Reg turning-up with tray loads of cream cakes. Reg also had a spell as Results' Editor of Race Walking Record in those days when it was controlled by 3 (Julian Hopkins & Peter Marlow being the others).

He continued to take interest in race walking after retiring to a village near the River Severn.  His contribution to British race walking, all in honorary capacity, was both immense and meritorius.

Not a Centurion...but claimed he'd once walked 100 miles while in Kenya!

The funeral is on 4th September, a private family cremation will be followed by a memorial service in St. Luke's Church, Tutshill, Chepstow at 2pm. All are welcome at the memorial service and his daughter, Ann, says that it would be lovely to see old friends from Dad's life.
