Also playing along the courses will be General Public, Tommy Tutone and Tone Loc. A finish line/post-race party featuring Devo is promised at each event.
The next race will be run in New York’s Central Park on Thursday (July 22), followed by Portland on Aug. 1 and Chicago on Sept. 23. Registration information and details can be found on the Nike Run Hit Wonder Web site.
