From right, Carol Lewis, Jill Head, Leslie Head, Ann Harlan, Amy Head and Meredith Fuemmeler chat as they watch other runners walk in before the '80s fun run Saturday at Mojo's. Event organizers describe the run as being more of a social experiment than an athletic event.

Mojo's held an '80s fun run on Saturday. Participants broke out their most fashionable and forgotten '80s attire to compete for the title of "Best Costume and '80s Attitude."

A vintage-style boombox tops off a runner's retro attire Saturday at Mojo's. The '80s fun run, which started at Mojo's and ran through downtown Columbia had dozens of costumed participants.
More than halfway done with the race, Matt Mower, left, and Debi Hanuscin run through the MU quadrangle on Saturday en route to the finish line for the first annual '80s fun run. Unlike most races, participants were competing for the title of 'Best Costume and '80s Attitude.'
Only moments away from the finish line, Michelle Twitty runs to the sound of '80s music which event organizers had playing at various legs in the '80s fun run held Saturday at Mojo's. Participants were given free ice cream at the end of the race.
