2-Minute Video For A Minuteman Race

The Westport Young Woman’s League is heading near the finish line, making preparations for their 35th annual Minuteman 5K and 10K races.

This year’s event is set for Sunday, April 28, beginning and ending at Compo Beach.

It’s a great fundraiser, and plenty of fun — whether you like to run, or prefer to stand and cheer.

With all the worthy events going on in Westport, it’s hard to stand out. And unless you’ve participated in a road race, you might not understand what all the hoopla is about.

So the  WYWL produced a video, featuring last year’s race. It’s professionally done, filled with faces and action.

Click here; it’s worth the couple of minutes it takes to watch. But be warned: After viewing, you may be inspired to actually sign up and run.
