The Southold Athletic Association held its annual 5K race and fun run in Southold Saturday morning.

Despite the bitter cold and wind, 265 people participated in the race and several dozen kids took part in the fun run.

The fastest boy was 17-year-old Jerome Vessichio of Rocky Point, who finished with a time of 16:38.

Melanie Pfenning of Cutchogue, 15, took first place among the girls, with a time of 19:59.

Proceeds from the race benefit the Southold Athletic Association, which works to provide health and wellness opportunities to Southold students and The North Fork Parish Outreach Food Pantry in Greenport.
