COVENTRY — Area runners braced for the cold while taking in the scenery of the Portage Lakes during the Between the Lakes 5K Run/Walk, which took place Dec. 7 along the waterfront of North Reservoir and Long Lake.

Among the participants supporting the event was Bath resident Chady Hall, who is pictured at right with her dog Hallsey taking a warm-up jog before the start of the race.

Others taking part in the event are shown above.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Coventry Schools Foundation for teacher projects and supplies for teachers in the Coventry Local School District, as well as scholarships for students.

Prizes were awarded for both running and walking divisions.
