  • INTRODUCTION

    Ever wear shoulder pads, leg warmers, or banging acid wash jeans? Did you love the taste of Crystal Pepsi and the sounds of a good mix tape? Step away from your Pac-Man and Galaga machines and take part in the Retro Run! I pity the fool that does not dress 80s appropriate. Best male and female costumes, as judged the Cobra Kai dojo, will go home with a cruiser bike! Sweep the leg!

    Bring an item for Chaplaincy for the Homeless and be entered into our post race raffle for products from our great sponsors.

  • CHAPLAINCY FOR THE HOMELESS

    Deodorant

    Kleenex
