We LOVE Malden!


After organizing road races for several years in Cambridge, MA, "Cambridge 5K" (aka "C5K Sports") reached out to the City of Malden to propose a new road race that would benefit Malden's Veterans and also highlight Malden's thriving food industry [Piantedosi Baking Co, Dom's Sausage Co, Hoff's Baking] & craft beer brewers [Idle Hands Craft Ales + others on way]. C5K initially selected Malden because of it's close proximity to Boston (Malden is 5 miles north and T accessible) and beautiful leafy neighborhoods, but quickly fell in love with the City's warmth and extremely well organized City government! Sign up to run with us and see why Malden was voted "Best Place to Raise Your Kids" by Bloomberg/Businessweek!


We RUN to Support The Community!

Founded in 2011, Cambridge 5k 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 local charities such as Cambridge CampingCambridge Family & Children's ServiceEast Cambridge Business AssociationAhearn Family Charitable Foundation & One Brick Boston. It doesn't matter if you're fast or slow, C5K event are all about staying active and having fun!
