Malverne 5K Run: 10-Year Anniversary

The Malverne Educational and Fitness Foundation (MEFF) committee met to discuss the Malverne 5K annual run/walk for education. We are celebrating our 10-year anniversary. The 5K run and kids fun run will take place on October 19th. This year again, we’ll coordinate with other 3 community runs and form the Southwest Nassau Run Series. We had a positive response from the running community after the inaugural Series last year. Runners/walkers admitted the Series kept them active for a longer period of time. The sponsors also liked the fact they received a larger exposure. Their message went to approximately 1,500 participants.

This year, the Inwood 5K run will open the Series on October 12th. Weekend later, it will be Malverne, followed by the Five Towns Community Chest 5K on October 26th. Fly with the Owls 4-mile run will close the Series on November 15th. When is a good time to start preparing? Now. If you need a stronger motivation, perhaps enrolling your kid in the OLL Malverne CYO cross country team and running along will help. Their practices will start in July. Continue reading
