Run the streets of Seattle in nothing but your undies this weekend

Feb 6 2020, 11:30 am

Still in search of weekend plans? Don’t worry, this one doesn’t even require you to put on clothing — it’s the annual Cupid’s Undie Run.

This Saturday, February 8, strip down and get ready for a brief run and party filled with fun.

Cupid’s Charity initially decided to create an undie run in 2010 as a way of raising money towards neurofibromatosis (NF) research.

“We run in our undies because those affected with NF can’t cover up their tumors to feel most comfortable, so why should we?” they state on the Cupid’s Charity site.

The race itself costs $45 to join, with various incentives for fundraising. If you raise $100, you’ll receive a commemorative tee. If you raise $250, you’ll get official 2020 undies, a T-shirt, and access to an open bar on Saturday. All of the money raised before, during, and after the race goes towards NF research.

On Saturday, arrive at 456 N 36th Street at 12 pm to check in and start partying and mingling with friends, music, and drinks.

At 2 pm, start stretching and get ready for the fifteen-minute run. Yes, the fun run is just fifteen minutes. The mile-long run will take place down N 36th Street, Stone Way N, and then wrap around N 34th to the Cheshiahud Lake Union Loop and back up Phinney Avenue N.
