Pick Your Design


While  the registration for all 4 races of the inaugural Southwest Nassau Run Series has been open already for some time (online registration only), we didn’t open the registration for Malverne 5K run until now. There are both, a single registrant form and a “family” form for multiple registrations available at the Registration page. Don’t delay your registration, though. Only the first 250 registrants (series and Malverne run combined) will have their shirts waiting for them at the registration desk on the day of the run. Not only you’ll have your shirt, but for the first time in the history of Malverne 5K you can let us know (using the form below) what T-shirt design you prefer to wear. Continue reading


Strengthening Our Communities through Partnership

As the date of the Malverne 5K run approaches, we are working out the details. We extended the T-shirt design contest till August 15th, evaluation and selection of the favorite design till August 31st. We invited the Rolling Thunder team to compete with us and we decided to start the process of getting the Malverne 5K run sanctioned by the USATF. During spring we made effort to extend our last year’s partnership with Fly with the Owls and we are excited to announce we’ll be partnering with 3 distinct and successful community runs.

Let’s Start, Malverne 5K Run

2013 Event Date

Spring is here and it means it’s time to start preparing the Malverne 5K run. At its last meeting, the Malverne Educational and Fitness Foundation (MEFF) committee discussed changes that will be implemented in the 9th annual edition. October 6th was selected as the date of the event.

start sign… and other details

The kids race will precede (30 minutes) the 5K as last year, but will use the 5K finish line. This change will allow kids to be timed and their race will become virtually part of the run. The tradition of the annual t-shirt design will continue and be organized in the form of a design contest open to anyone who will be interested. Details will be announced in upcoming months. There will be only one location open for all the venues—registration and the awards ceremony with refreshments.

Sponsorship and Volunteers

With the 5k run kick-off meeting, the search for sponsors and volunteers started as well. We would like to have more lead cyclists and more course marshals on the street corners. Companies interested in sponsoring the event have an excellent opportunity to reach approximately 200 participants and their immediate family members. They are also encouraged to provide their samples or services for raffles. All proceeds from the event are used to support educational programs in the school district. If you work for a company that might be interested in becoming the main event sponsor, please share the sponsorship information with them.
