Race of the Month: Cupid’s Undie Run

February 2nd, 2012

We're pretty sure this guy's doing it wrong.

It’s the shortest month of the year, and we’re celebrating with the shortest race we’re featuring all year. Cupid’s Undie Run is just 1.5 miles long, meaning that for a lot of you it’ll be over before you can say “Meb Keflezighi.”

So what’s the big deal? Well the name says it all, people. Keyword: Undie. February 11, 2012 is your chance to run with hundreds of other people in natty nighties, boffo boxers, and too-revealing tighty-whities. Add in a pretty solid chance for brisk weather in most of the cities hosting an event (New York, Washington DC, Cincinnati, Atlanta, Denver and Seattle) and you’ve got a recipe for race-day memories.

All this fanny freezin’ is for a good cause of course, with proceeds benefitting The Children’s Tumor Foundation, an organization dedicated to ending neurofibromatosis through research. Race organizers have raised over $75,000 to date for research into this debilitating genetic disease.

PR in Your PJs

We’re betting this all sounds like a pretty big hoot. But, you say, I don’t have an undergarment that’s ready to see the light of day. First of all, that’s a little nasty. Seriously. Put underwear on your next Target shopping list. But also, think about buying a pair of “custom Cupid’s undies” to clothe your behind and raise a little extra cash for the cause.

So you’ve got the time, you’ve got the skill, you’ve got the undies and you’ve got a bunch of race locations to choose from. It’s not too late to register and run, unless you live near DC. Then it is too late. That race is sold out. But still 5 cities are just waiting for you so register today for this race on February 11, 2012!
