One of the most fun running event Sunday Finish Line Festivals got even better with music on the main stage before and after Saturday’s 5:00 PM OC 5K. Every year we build an even better festival around our centerpiece band, Flashback Heart Attack, the best 80’s band on Earth. The past few years have seen other 80’s stars grace the Ultimate Finish Line Party Stage including Dale Bozzio of Missing Persons, Mike Score from Flock of Seagulls, Tommy Tutone, and John Easedale from Dramarama,Clive Farrington, Nick Richards, Annabella Lwin of Bow, Wow Wow and Wally Palmar from the Romantics. All runners get a Massage from Massage Envy  and a free beer , two for Legacy members. With over 30 vendors as well, it is a finish line party like none other.
