We are excited to once again be hosting our 5K in Dearborn at Ford Field Park. This race is going to be "Far Out" as we celebrate the 60s! Each year we theme the race after a decade and it's time we celebrate the Swinging Sixties! Groovy right? 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.
Each year a new medal design is launched for the Michigan Mega Medal Series. In 2023, finisher medals from six events in Southeastern Michigan will connect to create one MEGA Medal. Dearborn Decades is the THIRD race of the 2023 series!
(see the connecting medals below)
Awards will be given to the top 3 overall male and female finishers.
Awards will also be given to the top 3 males and females in the following age groups in the 5K: 14 and under, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80+

2nd - 400
3rd - 350
