Annual Earth Day run in Clear Lake draws large crowd

{{featured_button_text}}

The annual Clear Lake Earth Day 5k/10k run took place Saturday morning at City Park, drawing a crowd spanning every age group.

Over 200 participants were greeted with sunny skies and fair weather after a week of high winds and low temperatures as they readied for the race. Awards were given to the fastest time to men and women in each age category for both the 5k and the 10k distances, all the way up to 70-plus.
