Report on the 2018 Race - By Rob Whitney, Race Director

"The weather was beautiful for the 14th Annual Westport Island Shore Run  - "Maine’s Best Little 10K Road Race" - which took place on August 19, 2018, 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."
 

Westport Islander David Grant was the 1st place male winner of the 10K race; and Leslie Couper of Falmouth, Maine, was the 1st place female winner.  Serena Blasius, 16. of Friendship, Maine, was the 6th place female finisher and was the youngest runner.  Jerk Hedberg of Sweden came the farthest to compete in the race.  Go Sweden! 

The race benefited the Westport Island Volunteer Fire Department, whose members directed traffic and provided logistical support at the race.  Over the last 14 years, the race has generated over $20,000 in proceeds for the fire department.

Our sincere thanks go out to our 2018 sponsors, including: Wayfair; Maine Yankee; Sheepscot River Marine Service; Bath Savings Bank; Ames True Value Supply; Newcastle Jeep, Chrysler, 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 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."
