PAUL SMITHS - Nearly 50 runners, with the majority clad in costumes, braved snow flurries and a steady wind to compete in Saturday's 20th annual Pumpkin Muffin 5-kilometer run on the campus at Paul Smith's College.

Competitors included current students, alumni, faculty members and area distance running enthusiasts who were helping the college celebrate its homecoming weekend.

Rochester's Corey Roth, who was in the 15-19-year-old age group, was the overall champion, finishing in 18 minutes, 46 seconds. PSC student Zach Davidson was runner-up with a 19:13 finish time.
