The Southold Athletic Association held its 4th annual 5K and fun run Saturday morning. The event is held to provide health and wellness opportunities to Southold students and to benefit The North Fork Parish Outreach Food Pantry in Greenport.

Participants were asked to bring a donation of non-perishable food to keep the local food bank filled.

North Road Deli donated bagels, Woodside Orchards donated apples, and the Southold IGA donated water for the runners.

The winner in the men’s division was 16-year-old Jerome Vessichio of Rocky Point with a time of 18:51.5.

The winner in the women’s division was Lindsay LaFleur, 26, of Holbrook, with a time of 20:09.4.
