May 5, 2018 – 14th annual run for the water
8K BEACH RACE and 5K family fun walk/run
The Westport Fishermen’s Association hosted its 14th annual Run for the Water at the DCR Horseneck Beach State Reservation in Westport MA on a mild and sunny day. As always, proceeds support WFA’s efforts to protect and preserve the Westport River and its marine habitat as well as our scholarship and education programs.
Despite the intermittent rain, we had a great turnout with participants coming from ten states. In 2017 we swapped out the 8K course for a 10K distance and Matt Moussamih from Swansea won it in 40:22. Lauren Galiardi of Cumberland, RI was the women’s winner, coming in at 46:59. Top finishers in the 5K Fun Run were Dan Murphy of Westport and Katie Knapp from Brooklyn, NY.
