It’s a great way to enhance that neighborly relationship that we have.”
The Malverne race, which also goes through Lynbrook and Lakeview, will take place on Sunday, Oct. 14, at 9 a.m. The Fly with the Owls race will take place on Saturday, Nov. 17. Those who wish to sign up or find out more information can visit www.malvernerun. org or www.flywiththeowls.com.
