To Do: Totally Awesome 80s Run

Channel your inner Bangles and take part in this, well, totally awesome race.

There are few things better in life than costume parties. Which is why when you combine a run with a costume bash, you have a recipe for a really fun event. On Saturday, August 25th, the Totally Awesome 80s Run will take place in Pitman, New Jersey, just over the bridge in Gloucester County. The event includes a 5K run at  11 a.m. (hooray for sleeping in!) followed by an 80s-themed dance party at the Carolina Blue Smokehouse and Taproom, complete with a live 80s cover band, buffet spread and an open bar until 1 p.m (drink specials to follow). Awards will be handed out for the top male and female finishers, best costumes and best Running Man interpretation at the finish line. Totally awesome, right? Register if you want to participate because the race caps at just 300 runners. Get more info and register here.

$44, plus $10 for open bar; Saturday, August 25th, 11 a.m to 3:30 p.m., 692 Lambs Road, Pitman, New Jersey.
