Rock the 80’s


Event Date: Saturday, September 10, 2016

We are delighted to announce the return of the Rock the 80’s race to it’s original home in Elk Grove, CA. 20130922_Rock80_Start-13

After a long permitting process whereby we were unable to secure a location in Folsom, we are bringing this bodacious event back to it’s original home in Elk Grove, about twenty minutes south of Downtown Sacramento. This year’s event will be held at Cosumnes River College – Elk Grove Center, which is across the street from the event’s original home at Cosumnes Oaks High School in Elk Grove.

All new routes await you – we encourage you to come experience the 80’s – whether it’s for the first or your second time. Run like a virgin to the beats of your favorite 80s tunes and afterwards party like it’s 1989.

The event includes 5K, 10K and 8 mile options plus a non-competitive Kids Run. Other race activities include vendors, a costume contest, photo ops and of course 80s music.

Your fluorescent pink legwarmers will keep you stylin’ on the course and with a little aquanet your big hair will stay put until you cross the finish line and receive your one-of-a-kind 1980’s themed medal. Courses are  flat and paved (asphalt) and run on the streets of Elk Grove. Water stations approximately every two miles.

It’s gonna be on like Donkey Kong.
