RIDWAY — While polar plunges across the state have been cancelled due to dangerously cold weather, Elk County's running group The Striders (www.elkcountystriders.com)  took to the streets to run nearly naked before plunging into the Clarion River.

Information about the event said the temperature was about 12 degrees with 13 mph winds and a -3 wind chill factor. As the river was not yet completely frozen, it was estimated its temperature was around 33 degrees.
