Runners take part in Yates-Astro Resolution race 5-K at Bethesda Academy

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Runners came out in big numbers Saturday to Bethesda Academy for the Yates-Astro Resolution Race 5-K run and walk in Savannah.

Tobogganed runners took off early in the morning to help raise money for Bethesda Academy, shedding layers and smiling as they crossed the finish line after racing through Bethesda's organic farm and cattle pastures.

Over 300 runners took part in the event, taking in the scenery and enjoying the sites while running for a cause.

"It's fun to run around Bethesda because it's not an even path like you're used to," said Cathy Baker of Savannah.

"It's a campus that you don't get see very often, and you see them out in the community a lot at the farmer's markets that are run by their farm, and to see the cows and to see the chickens, it was a really nice experience."

WTOC's own Marsha Fogerty took second place in her age division, and Pat Prokop took home the title in his age division.

Congratulations to all those that ran in Saturday's event.
