Hundreds Participate in Girl Scout Cookie Classic

You normally may not associate cookies and exercise, but the two went together perfectly this weekend.

More than 300 local Girl Scouts and their families participated in the Trefoil 5k and Samoa Stroll one-miler at the Dismal Swamp Canal Trail in Chesapeake Saturday morning.

This was the 3rd annual Cookie Classic Run, but it was the first year first responders and military members participated in teams at the event.

Money raised goes toward girl programs and adult learning opportunities.

Prizes were handed out for best costume and best spirit. Click here to check out some more pictures from the run.
