Photo Gallery: 25th annual Greylock Federal 5k Fall Clasic Road Race
NORTH ADAMS -- The weather was less than ideal, but dedicated runners from North County -- and beyond -- weren't deterred from competing in the 25th annual Greylock Federal's 5k Fall Classic Road Race on Sunday.
Rain and chilly temperatures kept runners cool, but added an extra element: slippery pavement.
North Adams' own Eric Shannon won the race, while Susanna Edmond, of Minneapolis, Minn. was the first woman to cross the finish line.
Not everyone was in it to win it. Some competitors pushed strollers with young children -- no easy challenge -- while others simply took to the streets for some exercise.
Whatever the reason, smiles were all over.
