SPICER -- A masked posse of 94 runners and five walkers took on the sub-zero temperature and a 3.1-mile road course at the sixth annual Frozen 5k on Saturday morning along Green Lake.

With barely a breeze and the mercury at minus-8, this edition was a stroll in the park compared to the last two years. In 2009, the temperature was 13-below with a wind chill of minus-30; so cold that the distance was cut in half. A year ago, 90 runners competed in the rain.
