Runners will enter Westport on Greens Farms Road at the Fairfield town line, continuing to New Creek Road and on to Beachside Avenue before exiting into Southport.

Through traffic will be stopped or severely limited while runners make their way through town over a three-mile route, said Lt. Eric Woods.

“Motorists should anticipate heavy delays due to road closures along the race route,” he said. Race organizers expect runners will enter town by about 8:15 am and be off Westport streets by 10:15 a.m.

Sneak Shot of Sneaky Bill Cunningham

WestportNow photographer Helen Klisser During sneaked this shot of legendary New York Times fashion and street-style photographer Bill Cunningham sneaking a shot at a 2015 garden party at New York’s Frick Collection. Cunningham died today at age 87. In a 2002 New York Times article, Cunningham wrote: “The main thing I love about street photography is that you find the answers you don’t see at the fashion shows ...  I go out every day. When I get depressed at the office, I go out, and as soon as I’m on the street and see people, I feel better. But I never go out with a preconceived idea. I let the street speak to me.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Helen Klisser During for WestportNow.com
