Big changes are coming for the Malden Rotary Road Race! Late 2018 race organizers were approached by race organizers from a very successful running group. C5K Sports proposed changing our ace format from a 5k/10k format and creating the Malden Half Marathon and a 5 Mile Road Race.  
Our club deliberated quite a bit before agreeing to adopt the proposed changes. It was not easy for us to let go of formats but we knew this opportunity would be best for Malden Rotary, the City of Malden and the runners that have been with us for so many years.
Founded in 2011, C5K Sports was created by a group of local runners with a passion for organizing fun races that give back to the community. In 2017 we donated over $100,000 to Cambridge based charities.  They offer our club a great opportunity to give back to our community and the ability to allow runners with a successful track record of creating well organized, professional races and events for the running community.
We hope that you will continue to run with us and join us for either the 5 Mile of Half Marathon.
Join us on Sunday, March 10, 2019 for the 1st Annual Malden Half + 5 Mile organized by C5K Sports & Malden Rotary Club! Race registration includes a soft shell running jacket (see below) plus a finish line block party with Idle Hands!
