One of the highpoints of the race is the comical and entertaining costume contest, a tradition for the past 27 years. Members of the King Harbor Assn. group, mainstays of the contest, select a topical theme for their costumes each year. In 1988 when Florence Joyner won an Olympic gold medal in South Korea, the group all dressed as Flo Jo; they’ve done the Sgt. Pepper Beatles, and Madonna’s Blond Ambition dressing up in hilarious bustiers with pointed bras. The year Martha Stewart went to prison, they were the Running Martha’s dressed in striped prison garb and wearing garden gloves as they wielded spoons and spatulas.
The King Harbor Assn. group will walk in the 5/K, and everyone will hear them coming, because they have lively taped music set up in a baby buggy. These fabulous ladies don’t disappoint!
