Get Back To The Future with the 5th Annual Run Free Texas 80’s 8K!

You don’t need to be a DeLorean to have an 80’s excellent adventure.  Accelerate beyond the time barrier with high tops, hot pants, scrunchies, slap bracelets, and the glory of feathered hair!  Your time travel is set to depart at 7:30AM on Sunday 10/8/17 in Cedar Park, TX and the race will benefit Run Free Texas, a local cause serving at-risk youth. Remember it takes a village to raise a kid, so come out and show your support!  Race will be held RAIN or SHINE and all race entry fees once paid are NON-REFUNDABLE.
