Dearborn Homecoming is adding an 80s themed 5K run and 1 mile fun run……Whoa! So get amped because this run is going to be the bombdiggity. We’ve got a choice course, our cassette medals are the jam, and we’ll give out some spiffy door prizes for the best 80s themed costumes! When you register you will be prompted to sign up as part of a decade team. Pick the decade you associate either with Dearborn, or your high school graduation. All runners will be be age and gender graded and the fastest decade will take home the prize (see the details page for more information)!

In Addition to being placed individually, each runner will also be assigned to a Decade Team. Choose the decade you associate with your time in Dearborn, or if you are not from Dearborn, choose the decade you graduated high school! Each member of the team will have their time age and gender graded (your time compared to everyone else’s time without an age or gender bias). We will then score the event as follows:
We will use cross country scoring through 20 places on each team: (1st place = 1 point, 2nd place = 2 points 3rd place = 3 points etc.) In addition, each team will be able to reduce their score by 1 point for every team member they have! The more team members the better your score! The team with the lowest score wins.
The winning team will be given a special prize!
