Due to the current situation, and in working with local officials and event partners, it has been determined that the Awesome 80s Run cannot take place as scheduled on June 14, 2020. We would like to extend an invitation for you to join us in 2021, or to join us for a virtual run. Below is more information on both options
DEFER YOUR ENTRY TO 2021
If you would like this option, you don’t need to do a thing. Your entry will automatically be deferred to the Awesome 80s Run which will take place in the Summer of 2021. We are currently working with the Long Beach permit office and will announce our 2021 date soon.
TRANSFER TO THE VIRTUAL AWESOME 80s Run
If you choose this option, your race packet will be mailed to you including your race bib, blinking boombox medal, and T-shirt or trucker hat (whichever you selected when you registered). You can run your 5K or 10K anytime, any place. If you would like to send us your photos and results, we would love to post them on our Facebook page so we can all be together virtually!
To switch to the Virtual Run, please follow the steps outlined here. You have until May 21 at midnight to choose this option, and packets will be mailed June 3-5. .
On behalf of all of us here at the Awesome 80s Run, thank you for your flexibility and understanding. The health, safety, and well-being of our running community is our top priority. We look forward to seeing all of your happy, healthy faces soon!
Shoreline Aquatic Park
CARPOOL/DROP OFF: Carpooling is a great option if you are driving long distances. We highly recommend carpooling, plus it’s way more fun! You can also get dropped off anywhere near the park and not have to worry about parking.
