It was cold and rainy, but that didn't scare off runners for the first annual Run, Run Rudolph 5K on Saturday in Silsbee.

Christmas in the Big Thicket was cancelled subsequently for the day, but several of the 110 runners registered for Saturday's run gave it a go despite the uncomfortable weather, albeit with layers of clothing and rain gear.

The run was hosted by the Silsbee Public Library and several volunteers.
