Awesome 80's Run to Rock Miami's "Themed 5K" Trend Like a Hurricane
The latest in a long lineup of wacky runs making their way to the 305, the Awesome 80's Run is a tribute to the decade of Reagan and Jazzercise. This event comes complete with a DeLorean for photo ops, a pre-race dance party, a live 80's cover band, and a whole lot of other wacky time warp trappings that basically make this one big flashback. With both a 5K and a 10K option, you can choose your own adventure.
For a $40 registration fee ($45 for the 10K; the cost goes up if you wait till raceday), you score a custom '80s medal and t-shirt. Plus tons of '80s-style cheeseball fun.
"It's for everyone," says Kenneth Nwadike, Jr., President & CEO of Superhero Events, LLC. "We encourage people to come out, have a good time and be awesome. Whether you are running, skating, hula hooping, we just want people to have fun."

The first male and female finishers will get a special prize, and additional honors will be doled out to the largest team, the fastest 5K team, the team with the most awesome name and the team with the raddest costumes. They've seen the likes of a Rubik's cube and a homemade Ghostbuster's marshmallow man, to name a couple. So break out those shoulder pads and get creative.
For the non-competitive set, roller skates, hula hoops and pogo sticks are permitted, in case anyone wants to slide to the finish line in style.
