Totally Rad 80s Run
At the race emcee's cue, flashes of neon pink, lime green, and electric blue pour across the starting line. They may not be the hues of typical running apparel, which usually include black and grey so runners don't distract drivers, but this isn't a typical 5K. The Totally Rad 80s Run pays homage to the decade of the leg warmer by encouraging (though not requiring) runners to don '80s-inspired gear—workout or otherwise. The "raddest"-dressed participants win prizes, but everyone is welcome to beer and food available for purchase at the finish line. And since the 5K moves at a laid-back pace, you won't be too exhausted to enjoy it.
