COVENTRY — Area residents took the cold in stride 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.

The start of the event is shown top right, with participants ready to set off on the mark as race organizer Sean Fremon offers some final instructions.

The group is pictured above along the route.

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

Prizes were awarded for both running and walking divisions.
