A total of 38 people braved the chilly 58 degree morning on Oct. 1 to participate in Sidney’s first annual Splash Dash 5k fun run. 

The run started at the Sidney Elementary and ended at the Sidney Fire Station, where Sidney Hometown Pride was holding a pancake feed. 

Although it was not a timed event, several participants came in at around 30 minutes. Proceeds from the Splash Dash were to benefit the Sidney swimming pool project.
