Strawberry Day

strawberry day and 5k

On June 30, The National Running Center and The Gathering Place  will host the fourth annual Strawberry Day 5K and Festival in Clarks Summit on Davis Street and Spring Street.  The run will begin on Davis Street in front of the National Running Center at 9 AM.  After the 5K, young runners can compete in  a Kids’ Fun Run, a block-long race.

Following the race, from 9 until 11:30, families may enjoy strawberry shortcake and strawberry lemonade, browse vendors and take part in the kids’ games.  Children and adults are invited to launch water balloons, build cookie towers, dive for candy worms buried in whipped cream and enjoy the morning. Everyone is encouraged to visit the shops of downtown Clarks Summit, where special Strawberry Day discounts will be offered.
