We are excited to once again be hosting our 5K in Dearborn. In years past this race has been themed after a decade, and this year is no different “Daddy-0”. This event is for everyone from the “Cool Cats” to the “Ankle Biters”. If you haven’t guessed yet we are racing the 50s this year! Put on your Kicks and “Beat Feet” on this fast and fun USATF Certified Course. We have got fab prizes and hip medals.
During registration, participants will be prompted to sign up as a member of a specific decade. This is whichever decade you most associate with the Dearborn area. If you are not from Dearborn, you can sign up as whichever decade you graduated high school. We will crown a winning decade based on points scored during the race. We will Age Grade the finish times for the race to level the playing field and award the following points for the top finishers in each gender based on the age graded results –
|6th – 100th||248 (descending by 2 points per place)|
|101st – 160th||59 (descending by 1 point per place)|
