CLEAR SPRING - This year there will be a new attraction during the National Pike Days celebration in mid-May in Clear Spring - a 5K run.

Council member Terry Baker, a track coach/teacher with Washington County Public Schools, is working with Paul Banister to plan the event, which would be held Saturday, May 15, the second day of the annual festival.

"Right now, we are in the early stages of planning this," Baker said at Monday night's town meeting. He said he hopes to attract about 100 runners to the event.

The tentative start time for the run will be 9:30 a.m., right after the wagon train departs from its overnight encampment just outside Clear Spring. The traditional town parade begins at 10 a.m.

Baker said he and Banister will get together soon to map out the course and determine start and stop locations.

The entry fee should be between $15 and $20, with a discount for those who sign up before the day of the run.

More information will be released when the plans are firmed up, Baker said.
