When will you open the virtual option? I live in WA state and always do your run but the virtual always seems closed for registration - can you let me know? Would hate to miss this one ❤️
will you not be in Pasadena at all this year?? this is one of my favorite runs
All registered with my "BIG HAIR-DON'T CARE" team. Please feel free to join my team.
Where exactly is the start line for the race?
Just added your event to our West Coast Running Calendar (New mobile version). With 2,900+ events it's easily and quickly searchable. Good luck with your event !! - http://westcoastruncalendar.com/wcal.php?source=FB&event_title=&city_title=&city=LosAngeles&radius=50
Awesome 80s 10K in the books. Not my fastest but not my slowest. I love that the turntable on my medal actual spins....Totally Rad 😎😎😎
Hi all, I ran the Awesome 80s run in 2012. Unfortunately, when I moved back to the Bay Area (from the East Coast where I moved to in 2016), all of my medals never made it when I shipped everything back. I am wondering if there's anything you could do or advise me to do that could help me retrieve these medals as I like to keep them for memorabilla. Thank you in advance for reading this and any help you can offer!
Completed my Awesome 80s virtual run today! I am so loving this series of runs in the medals are AWESOME! When will you bring the series to the Seattle area so I can run live?? Thanks for offering the virtual option so at least I didn’t miss out 😊
Who wants to join me?
Completed my virtual run today between the rain - so love this run and LOVE these medals - will you consider coming live to the Seattle area??
Audrey and I want to do this... $33 bucks if we buy before Oct 7th
Hello :) 11 days til the race and no course map on the website. Will one be posted before the run? Thanks.
