80's Retro Run
Crowds of people decked out in leg warmers and bandanas, sporting popped collars on their Members Only jackets and rocking Wayfarer shades. It sounds more like a Duran Duran video shoot than a fun-run, and that's the gist of the 80's Retro Run. Set to a soundtrack of the decade's best tunes, the throwback 5K celebrates the years that gave the world MTV and landfills full of unsolved Rubik's Cubes. Contestants are encouraged to dress up like their favorite '80s icon as they run, walk, or moonwalk their way to the finish line. After they've completed the course, revelers can shake it up at the after-party, where cover bands and DJs kick out nostalgic jams. Proceeds from the Retro Run benefit local charities, and all contestants receive their own headband, an event T-shirt, and an excuse to show off their collection of antique slap bracelets.
