Steam escaped from runners mouths, Sunday, Feb. 3, as they huffed and puffed along the 5K course at the Freeze Your Buns Run in Hamel. The 10th annual fun run/walk ended with a pancake breakfast at the Hamel Veterans of Foreign Wars Post. The Hamel Lions, sponsors of the event, will use the money to benefit community projects.

Experienced runners head the pack along Hamel Road, while leisurely walkers trail behind.
