The entire course is a 4 mile block around the Village of Westport. Afterward participants return to the Legion for a barbeque and entertainment. This is a family oriented event, so sign your family and friends up today.

The entrance fee is $15 per person. If teams and individuals choose to collect pledges they can. For those who raise $100 or more the entrance fee is waved. You can download all the forms from the Lace Up 4 Marsha website.
