Totally tubular doesn’t even begin to describe the morning of fluorescent awesomeness that was the Rock the 80′s Run/Walk in Elk Grove, CA on Sunday, September 21. Thanks to all who join us for a flashback to the best decade ever.
The pictures and video are rolling in on Instagram (@a_change_of_page) and Facebook (Rockthe80sRun) and would make Richard Simmons proud. Keep ‘em coming.
In the meantime, below is a short video compilation from the finish line that we put together that we hope you’ll enjoy.

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).
