MOUNT PULASKI -- Saturday over 350 runners and walkers braved the damp chill, wind and off-and-on rain to help raise $5,000 at the  Mount Pulaski 5K Annabelle Phillips Run on the Hill .

Two abreast, lead runners were clocked at around 15 minutes at approximately the 2.5-mile mark by one of the street directors.

Each participant was handed a bottle of water as they crossed the finish line, and plenty of homemade baked goods were also available.

Mrs. Angie Cyrulik was the race director, with plenty of help from many local volunteers.

Annabelle 5K T-shirts were available for ordering. Buff’s Family Restaurant nearby on the square was busy. The Mount Pulaski Courthouse State Historic Site was busy as well, with 215 people who signed the register.
