Photo Gallery: Freeze Your Gizzard Race

A two-decade pre-holiday tradition returned Saturday morning with the annual Freeze Your Gizzard 5K and 1-mile fun run at Ida Lee Park in Leesburg. The event supports the Loudoun Hunger Relief food panty through sponsorships and food donations brought by runners.

Purcellville’s Cory Welch was the top finisher in the 5K, crossing the line with a time of 16:40. Emma Ahrens of Stephen City was the fastest female, finishing the course in 19:37.

    Congratulations to all of the particpants. And kudos to winner Cory Welch, who did Purcellville proud. Emma Ahrens was impressive, being the fastest female finisher. This is such a worthy cause. What could be more important? No food = No life. A standing ovation to all of the sponsors, including Loudoun Now.
