A little social distancing couldn’t stop the International Falls Freeze Yer Gizzard Blizzard run. The 41 year old tradition went virtual for the first time this year. Participants were asked to run where they were, between January 16 through 31. This year, 137 people took part in the 5K, with 48 participating in the 10K. Rainy River District had nine participants in the 10K, and 24 in the 5K, including these runners. Left to right, Nancy Witherspoon, Graeme Drombolis, Lorena Jenks, Hailey Beaudry and Dee O’Sullivan Drombolis. Canadian runners snagged the top spots for both the 5K and 10K women’s races, with Hailey Beaudry taking the top spot in the women’s 10K, while Priscilla Miller and Greta Fedoruk took the first and second respectively for the 5K.
