GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - A closed door meeting regarding the upcoming Bellin Run had race organizers and public safety officials discussing contingency plans on Wednesday.

Approximately 18 people from different local agencies, as well as Bellin Health and St. Vincent, began the meeting with plans to deal with inclement weather for the June 8th race.

Cellcom Green Bay Marathon executive director Sean Ryan, also present at the Bellin Run meeting, serves as a local representative of Dave McGillivray Sports Enterprises. DMSE, which also operates the Boston Marathon, is contracted by the Bellin to help operate the annual 10k event that has nearly 20,000 runners wind their way through neighborhoods in Green Bay and Allouez.

The media was made aware of the meeting Tuesday. But Bellin officials closed the meeting to reporters, once on site, except other than to get video or pictures for storytelling purposes.
