Dearborn Decades 5K

About

We are excited to once again be hosting our 5K in Dearborn.  In years past this race has been themed after a decade, this year we will be celebrating every decade.  So pick your favorite decade and come out and represent,  “Daddy-0”.  This is a great mid summer race for all of our racers getting ready for their A race in the fall, and for the casual runner looking for a fun 5K course!   Our fast and fun USATF Certified Course will give you a great shot at your PR.

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 this special decades category to level the playing field and award the following points for the top finishers in each gender based on the age graded results –

Scoring:

Place Points
1st 500
2nd 400
3rd 350
4th 300
5th 250
6th – 100th 248 (descending by 2 points per place)
101st – 160th 59 (descending by 1 point per place)

 

We also invite you to check out our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/5kdearborn.

We will score everyone age and gender graded and see which decade comes out on top!

This race is also a part of the Trivium Southeast Michigan Running Series, the Trivium Club Cup and the Trivium Mega Medal Series.  Athletes can earn points for themselves and their club for our end of season party.  This is also race #2 in the Trivium Mega Medal Series.  There are six races in this years Mega Medal Series
