The Malden Rotary Club will hold the Ninth Annual Malden Rotary Road Race, this Saturday, March 24.
Hundreds of runners are expected to participate in this year's race, which is once again dedicated in memory of two all-time great Rotarians, Warren Jackson and Charles Kelley. All of the net proceeds from the Road Race will go to benefit the Malden Rotary Club's community service projects, which range from scholarships for local high school students to a water treatment plant in Ghana.
"The Road Race is our biggest fund-raising event of the year and allows us to provide for those in need. Our mission of Service About Self impacts people in Malden and even internationally. We are lucky to have such a beautiful weather forecast for this wonderful community event." said Daniel Hoffenberg, president of the Malden Rotary Club.
The Malden Rotary Road Race is actually comprised of two races, both being USA Track and Field certified, a 5K with flat terrain and a 10K with moderate hills. Race Day registrations start at 10:30 a.m. and online registrations can be completed at www.Running4Free.com.
The first 300 runners to register will receive a free race day T-Shirt, runner's hat, runner's gloves, coupons, and much more. The Dockside Restaurant will host the post-race awards ceremony, which will be held immediately following the race and will feature pizza, beer, entertainment, and a fun family atmosphere.
