Past couple of weeks, we have been very busy with tuning up various registration forms, as you’ll find on the Registration page. From August 5 to August 11, we offered an early registration discount, in honor of the London games described in the previous post. We continue distributing registrations at neighboring races. (If you participate in some, let us know, we’ll give you few registrations to leave behind). We teamed up with Fly with the Owls of Lynbrook and are offering a combined registration for both runs at a discounted registration fee. The runners with the best combined time, AO winners and winners of the masters category, will be awarded a special prize of $100, generously provided by the Lynbrook Runner’s Stop. You’ll find detailed info on the Event page.
At the same time, we were working on organizing a running clinic for non-runners. The training is designed to get anybody across the finish line either walking, or running, or employing a combination of both. The clinic starts soon, check the details on the Clinic page. Running or walking in a group goes much faster and assures better results.
We are considering to build an archive consisting of photos and articles related to the past runs. Visit the Archive page (published soon) and, perhaps, you’ll get to register to run for free.
Your sponsorship really does make a difference! In the past, MEFF has used proceeds from the run to purchase Malverne high school scoreboard, baseball bleachers, and support the pre-prom party. It has also funded mini-grants for teachers and H. T. Herber Middle School’s Backyard Habitat project. You’ll find the sponsorship options on the Sponsors page.
Update: The clinic has been canceled.
