Whitehead and Cauthen reap victory at the Harvest Run

Leesburg, Georgia, Harvest RunThe Thanksgiving holiday in the United States is at least in part a harvest festival, so it was entirely appropriate to hold Leesburg, Georgia's second annual Harvest Run on Thanksgiving morning--Thursday, 26 November 2015.
