There is exactly one week remaining to register for kids races (50–400m) and the Malverne 5K run before the fee goes up (October 10). The two-race combined registration will close completely on that day. And the opportunity to win a $100 gift card will end with it. The map of the 5K course is now available on the Event page.
We added a team competition that is open to school district 12 employees who register as individuals. Each team will consist of 4 members randomly drawn out of a hat on the day of the run. The Malverne Educational and Fitness Foundation (MEFF) will award a $100 gift certificate to purchase school supplies to each member of the winning team.
The run organizers have used a different T-shirt design each year. The tradition continues and the design, disguised here, will be used on the T-shirt. All participants in 5K will get a shirt. The short sleeve shirts are runner friendly, made of moisture wicking materials that are suitable for sport activities. The shirts will be available for sale. We also have 4×4 in. magnets for sale.
Your opportunity to make a tax deductible contribution that supports youth programs is in effect and doesn’t end on the race day. Programs are sponsored throughout the year. Place your company logo with a link on our website, or submit a brief company profile. Find the sponsorship options on the Sponsors page
If you don’t plan on running or walking, we definitely need your help on the track where the kids races will take place, and then alongside the 5K course, as well. Detailed information and volunteer signup is on the Volunteers page. Cheering the runners/walkers is also a great help!
We posted some pictures and scanned an article related to the past events. If you have some additional pictures (from the start or finish), or articles, email them to us. If we place your contribution and you will be among first 10 senders, we’ll reward you with a free (transferable) entry to the run this, or the following year.
