Westport Island: Sneakers on the Ground

The 9th Annual Shore Run

Today… was a beautiful day in the neighborhood: just like last Sunday. And, last Sunday couldn’t have been more perfect (well, maybe a little less humid) for the 9th Annual Westport Island Shore Run benefiting the Island’s volunteer fire department. This year’s run brought in another $1,200 according to Rob Whitney, the race organizer.

Word is Westport Island is a tough 10K course because of hills. “Tough” may be more about location, location, location. Just when exhaustion has set in on the last half mile, you have to kick it up a notch to clear the climb from the causeway on West Shore up to the Main Road.

Although runners are not necessarily taking in the scenery, for the 3.5 mile walkers, the views aren’t too shabby. If you’re not a runner, think about joining the walkers next year for a beautiful walk in the neighborhood…
