Report on the 2017 Race - By Rob Whitney, Race Director

The weather was beautiful for the 13th Annual Westport Island Shore Run  - "Maine’s Best Little 10K Road Race" - which took place on September 10, 2017, beginning at 9 a.m.   The runners took to the field under a clear blue sky in this 10K road race on bridge-accessible Westport Island.   There were also many participants in the 3.5-mile "Fun Walk."
 


The race benefited the Westport Island Volunteer Fire Department, whose members directed traffic and provided logistical support at the race.  Over the last thirteen years, the race has generated almost $18,000 in proceeds for the fire department.

Our sincere thanks go out to our 2017 sponsors, including: Wayfair; Maine Yankee; Sheepscot River Marine Service; Bath Savings Bank; Ames True Value Supply; Newcastle Jeep, Chysler, Dodge; the Westport Island Brewing Company; Norm's Used Cars and the Hampton Inn of Bath.  Thanks to our many volunteers and to the Westport Island Community Association for allowing us the use of the Old Town Hall.  Also, thanks to Jim McCorkle of 5K Sports Management for another excellent job of timing the race.
