SARANAC LAKE — The annual Winter Carnival Fun Run drew its largest crowd ever Saturday, as 65 hardy participants took on the 4-mile course with the temperature hovering around 5 degrees.

Eric Holmes was the first runner to cross the finish line with a time of 27 minutes, 5 seconds. Joe Garso wasn’t far behind in 27:30 and Jared Whalen placed third in 28:37.
