Members Only Jackets, Spandex, afros, and tie dye, oh my, the 80s are back, and we invite you to join us at the most awesome 80′s Retro Run and party you’ve ever experienced. Along the 3ish mile course the greatest hits of the 80s will pump as you run, walk, and flash dance your way through a sea of neon clad goers. So, come have fun with us as we take you back in time at the raddest 80′s Retro Run on the planet.

ONE Wave  where ALL Participants will be released AT 9AM, so be there parked, checked in, and lined up!!!


The course is not completely paved and it may involve some off course trail running. Note that weather could possibly make the trail portion of the course more difficult to navigate. Jogging strollers are welcome.

Due to Weather:
We have created a course which loops twice to complete the full 5k.

there will be one water station serving you after the first loop and then again as you finish, after the second loop.
Wear weather appropriate gear, as it is an off road course.

Packet Pick Up


Location: Athens Running Company
1260 S Milledge Ave.
Athens, GA 30605

Early pick up will be Friday, March 28, 2014 from 2pm-6pm. If you are picking up your friends stuff for them, you will simply give us the name they registered under. If you must pick up your stuff on race day, arrive at 8am.

Reason for early pick up – Imagine 1,000 + people so excited to participate on race day, and then they have to stand in a 2 hour line because all 1,000 people are checking in at one time. This would be horrible for everyone!


Registration Will Fill Up

Yes, that is right. The longer you wait the more chance that you will not be able to participate in the most awesome 80's 5k party of the year!
