Grand Forks, ND (WDAY TV) -- A record number of runners braved brutal temperatures at Grand Fork's 5th annual Frozen Feet.

It was 10 below when the 5-k and 10-k started this morning. More than 400 runners took part. That's 50 more than last year.

Frozen Feat is supported and organized by Red River Runners. Each year, the race raises more than two thousand dollars for the Special Olympics.

Stacy Kusler with the Red River Runners says, "we are just so appreciative of all the runners that came out despite the cold temperatures. we've had a beautiful winter so far and on the one cold weekend we had the race, but that didn't stop people from coming out and just rocking it today."

Runners can't see results until Monday, because of new timing software.
