About This Activity

The Wiregrass Rocking 80's 5K and Fun Run is unique in that it offers a certified course for the serious runners and a FUN COURSE for the ones who are simply coming out to have fun and support a great cause!

This is an 80's themed run and participants are encouraged to come dressed in their 80's apparel...that's righ, those old hi top reeboks are needed again!!!

We will have several contest including 1) Biggest Hair 2) Best Rocker 3) Best Dancer  4) Best Dressed Team 5) Best Dressed Individual 6) Best Alll Around Team. All of these contest are for 80's theme dressed runners...we have some cool trophies and great prizes for all of these special runners.

In addition we will have 5 really cool CHALLENGES set up along the run course. These will involve actually stopping at the booth and performing a CHALLENGE, so for runners who are out to actually win the gold medal, you can come back after you cross the finish line and participate...but for those who just want to come out and have fun and support a great cuase, stop by these booths for a chance to win some great prizes. Every team will get a "prize" for participating.

We will have some great 80's music playing along the run route for your enjoyment.

We will also have designated last place finishers, so couch potatoes, don't worry about finishing last.

This run is sponsored by the Greater Tattnall Chamber of Commerce.

All proceeds from this run will go to Connection Point's School Supply Giveaway that provides school supplies to children in our community.
