Get in on the ground floor of a new Detroit tradition: The Detroit Decades Dash.
This year’s theme is the 1980s, and there are prizes for the best costumes. So dig out your pink and black Spandex, your power suits with big shoulder pads, your biggest hair and that Members Only jacket. The route winds through one of Detroit’s most historic neighborhoods. Top finishers get medals and registering for the race gets you into the other Homecoming activities, too!
