    Meaning of "come hurrying round at a run"

    Hello everyone,

    I am reading the children's poem "Sneezles" (https://www.familyfriendpoems.com/po...s-by-a-a-milne) but I do not understand the following part of it:


    All sorts and conditions
    Of famous physicians
    Came hurrying round
    At a run
    .


    What does "come hurrying round at a run" mean?

    I could not find any explanation for it online, it would be great if you could help me.

    Thanks.

    But what does it mean exactly? I am not a native speaker. Does it mean they came running fast?
