The much anticipated medals are here and the aquanet is ready. Time to get into the groove and rock on down to electric avenue! Rock the 80s 8 Mile, 8 Mile Relay and 5K will kick off at 8:00 AM at Cosumnes Oaks High School in Elk Grove, CA. The Kids Fun Runs start at 10:00 AM (Half and Quarter Mile). Race Day registration will be available for all divisions.
Party on, Wayne!by
No one has broken the course record in the 5K and 10K in awhile, so we thought we’d add a little gravy to the dish. If you think you can do it, (Male or Female record), come on out and give it a try. If you succeed, we’ll write you a $250 check on the spot. All contenders must be registered participants in the event.
Note: if more than one runner of the same gender breaks a course record in the same distance, the cash prize will be awarded to the runner with the fastest (gun) time. Note #2: Gun times are used for course records.
Course Records are:
10K Men: 30:27 | 10K Women: 36:04
5K Men: 14:37 | 5K Women: 16:45
We are excited to see a fast race! (Pictured below is the 2008 Turkey Trot start, the last time a course record was broken).
It’s going to be totally radical, like, out of this world, dude. Rock the 80′s is a blast from the past – fluorescent clothes, leg warmers, tie dye, frizzy hair, great tunes, big hair and lots of, well, FUN!
Sunday, September 21st, join us in Elk Grove, CA for the 2nd Annual Rock the 80′s Run / Walk, which offers an 8 Mile, 8 Mile Two-Person Relay and 5K. For the kids, there’s also a Half Mile Fun Run. One thing about this event will decidedly not be from 1985 – the event will be timed with disposable RFID chips and we will offer live tracking and split times. A bodacious finisher medal (pictured to the left) awaits you at the finish line. See you there Wayne! Party on, Garth!
Register today - our mom and dad said we could only have 1,200 friends at this party (space is limited).by
