Event Details

What is the best decade? It is without a doubt the 80's. Those who grew up in the 80's want to go back and those who didn't want to go and experience it. It was a time with crazy hairstyles, clothes, music and technology. It was a time when technology was just reaching out to a whole new world. Computers, Atari and Walkmans were ruling the world. The 80's took us from records and 8-tracks to the amazing and compact cassette tape. It was so amazing that we could fit all our music on this little cassette tape. We could hold this amazing electronic device called a walkman and play our cassette tape. You could rewind, fast forward and pause our music on demand....WOW! Who remembers taking a #2 pencil to fix their cassette tape, we all did it.
The 80's were a decade of unforgettable clothes, hairstyles and music. There were many hair supply companies that thrived in the 80's because of all the hairspray used to get your hair just as you wanted it. Girls could not make their hair fluffy or puffy enough. Guys wanted their hair longer and straighter. The mullet was such a work of art. To compliment the great hair women wore wonderful wardrobes with items like jelly bracelets, jelly shoes, leg warmers, shoulder pads Guess jeans and vibrant neon clothing. The men loved to wear denim and members only jackets, baggy pants, tight white shirt and parachute pants. People would spend all this time on their hair and outfits to go out and listen to amazing music. The decade started with some unforgettable bands like Duran Duran, Motley Crew, Bon Jovi, Metallica, R.E.M., Eurythmics, A-Ha, Wham and Depeche Mode. The finished with some amazing group becoming mainstream such as Guns n Roses, Beastie Boys, Madonna and Michael Jackson. The 80's introduced us to rap with the likes of Run DMC, Beastie Boys, Public Enemy, 2-Live Crew, Slick Rick and N.W.A. The 80s were such a revolutionary time in the music industry and is still a major influence on music today.
There was so many great moments in the 80's and would like to take you back to this amazing time at the Inaugural I LOVE THE 80's 5K Run/Walk. The day promises to be a trip down memory lane and an experience to the most unforgettable decade. We will have the best 80's music p
