More than 700 people bared the chilly weather for a 5K in Sibley Park this evening.

The first time 5K was sponsored by Exclusively Diamonds and Organized by the Mankato YMCA.

The hundreds of runners did have a pretty sight though, having to make three loops around the lighted park.

All proceeds from this event support the Mankato Family YMCA and local programs.

Sponsor, Sarah Person, says, "We love to help out the community. This is important to us. We are passionate about the Mankato YMCA and all the great programs it has. Girls on the Run is a good program, Stride does wonders for girls. And it's just been a lot of fun to be a part of this."

The men's and women's top winner each received a $500 gift card from Exclusively Diamonds.
