Freshly fallen snow, cold temperatures and crusty, somewhat slippery conditions, greeted the hardy souls who participated in the fourth annual "Reindeer Dash" four-mile road race — which benefited Toys For Tots — on Sunday, Dec. 10.

Jack Hauprich and Naomi Holzhauer set the cold but cozy race pace for men and women, as the duo finished first and second, respectively, in 28:29.5 and 28:41.4.

Participants were dressed as reindeer, elves and even Santa Claus, and many wore all manner of ugly holiday sweaters.

There were walkers for the event as well.

The four-mile event, longer than the usual area 3.1-mile, or 5-kilometer, road races, was presented by KDK screen printing and embroidery of Thomaston and held in and around First National Bank on Union Street in Rockland.
