Reliving Bad Memories + Exercise = Fun

There’s a thing called the Bad Prom 5K that’s so much more than just Bad Prom and a 5K. First of all, you run in your worst prom dress … at dark. (Fingers crossed it’s plastered with sequins.) Along the race path, you’ll dash through every predictable prom theme, loaded with lights, props and music. But unlike prom, this won’t end with a potential pregnancy. Instead, you’ll only make it to second base. That’s right, the race starts and ends at The Ballpark in Arlington. Once you cross the finish line, your sweaty ass will stumble into “the most ridiculous dance party ever.” In an effort to abandon their concept completely, Bad Prom says you can also wear a bridesmaid’s dress, so hit up the ol’ thrift store or just wear your free race tee. Bad Prom is from 6:55 to 10 p.m. Friday. You can register now at Entry starts at $42 per person.
