My husband and I need totally awesome 70's costumes. That we can run a 5K in.

We're planning to run in a 5K at the end of September, and it has a "retro" theme. The best 70s costumes win a pair of running shoes, so it is CRITICAL that we win. We're a male/female pair in our mid-30s, and we don't remember the 70s that well. I've googled up some pictures of stuff from the 70s, but I can't run in a maxi dress or bell-bottom jeans.
Possibly relevant information:
- This will be our first 5K. I'm a slow, sort of crappy runner. My husband is a better runner, but not experienced.
- I have long (past my shoulder blades), straight hair - sort of like Donna from That 70s Show. The husband has a buzz cut.
- Weather is likely to be in the mid 70s to low 80s here at that time, although this has been an uncharacteristically warm this year.
- We're both pretty fit and willing to wear things that are silly, short or revealing. I have to wear a good sports bra, though.
A couples costume would be great, but not a requirement.
What kind of costumes can we wear?
Final note: In the time it has taken me to type this question, my husband has started thinking about making a shorts jumpsuit with a zipper up the front out of technical fabric for his costume. Feel free to comment on this idea as well.
