Report on the 2015 Race - By Rob Whitney, Race Director
The weather was beautiful for the 11th Annual Westport Island Shore Run - "Maine’s Best Little 10K Road Race" - which took place on August 16, 2015, beginning at 9 a.m. Almost fifty 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 eleven years, the race has generated over $15,000 in proceeds for the fire department.
The overall women's winners of this year’s race were: 1st place was Sarah Beazley of Harpswell, Massachusetts; 2nd place was Julia Merton from East Longmeadow, Massachusetts; and 3rd place was Isabelle Dunning from Dedham, Massachsuetts.
The overall men's winners of this year’s race : 1st place was Joe Molvar of Newbuyport, Massachusetts; 2nd place was Chase Hughes from Westport Island, Maine; and 3rd place was Lisandro Berry-Gavi, also of Westport Island, Maine.
