Running humans and running dogs took to the trails Saturday, October 20 at Sunset Ridge in Westbrook during the Run the Ridge Trail Race organized by Discover Downtown Westbrook. The course took runners and walkers along a tree-lined trail and mowed path – and the sun even showed its face for a bit. A fine fall foliage race!

More than 120 runners and walkers participated in this 2nd annual Run the Ridge event – and a host of four-legged runners and walkers, too.

Congrats to all the winners:
