Eighty-five participants competed in the inaugural South of the River Fun Run last month.
The event featured a kids mile, a 2-mile walk and a 5k run. All proceeds benefited the Midway High School basketball and football programs.
The kids mile kicked off the event. Participants raced around the Midway baseball field while parents and bystanders cheered them on.
Emma Snow won the gold medal, Nathan Byers took the silver, and Jake Sullivan was awarded the bronze.
