Radical '80s 5k/10K Run

Event Info

Come join us for the second annual fun filled, 80s themed 5k/10k event taking place in South San Jose at Hellyer County Park during the heart of the summer. Rock on with us as we party it up and celebrate one of the most tubular eras of our time. We encourage all participants to dress up in their favorite 80s wear. Rock those side ponies, sweatbands, neon belly tees and cut off jean shorts; whatever your little heart desires. Let's travel back in time and make some totally radical memories.

Both distances will begin at 9:00 AM, sharp!

Other Info

Where can I park and is it free?

You can park within the county park grounds, however there is a fee to do so. The fee will be posted at the entrance gate as it changes throughout the year and is collected by the park. The typical cost is approx. $5. You are free to park on any public street or space, just be sure to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the start of your race so that you have time to do so.

Do I get any cool stuff?

Each participant, regardless of distance, will receive an awesome gender specific t-shirt and finisher medal, among other fun items in your swag bag. The shirts and medals will be totally rad, giving off that true 80s vibe. You'll want to rock these tees day after day just because they're super cool. We know you'll be posting your medal all over Instagram to show how awesome, hip and active you are all at the same time. Want more? Great! We will also host a raffel after the awards ceremony where participants can select from a number of awesome prizes. Total score!

Are there any awards?

Totally! We will be awarding the top 3 finishers for each distance, male and female. The award ceremony time is to be held shortly after the completion of both courses. This year our awards have been custom designed andhand made by Phil Van Ornum of Van Ornum Woodworking. You can learn more about his work here: http://www.vanornumwoodworking.com/ - We know for curtain that you're going to love and appreciate these fine pieces of art. 

Will there be any food?

Absolutely! We will offer fresh fruit, muffins, cookies and other goodies from our sponsors. California summers are scorchers, so we wanted to have something on site to quench your thirst and satisfy your sweet tooth. That being said, we're bringing in that iconic Kona Hawaiian Ice truck. Kona Ice will be available for an additional, yet very reasonable fee. Prices begin at $3 per snow cone. We know you want one. :)
