You can party with your pants off this weekend! Cupid’s Undie Run will be going down on Saturday, February 9th at Stage 48 (605 West 48th Street). You’ll be partying for about four hours, and running for fifteen minutes.
It isn’t required that you wear nothing but underwear, but shit. Might as well! When else can you do this without getting arrested? And nobody likes a party pooper.
Here’s the schedule:
- 12pm: check in and drink for 2 hours.
- 2pm: run!
- 2:15pm: stop running. go drink more.
- 4pm: put your clothes on and go home.
The event will include live music, a costume contest and award ceremony.
If you want to just watch, spectators are encouraged to line the race course (you just can’t go inside). The actual run will span about a mile, and it’s definitely not a race, so pace yourselves.
Tickets are $40 and all profits will be going to the Children’s Tumor Foundation, which will use the money towards researching Neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder that affects 1 in every 3,000 children born.

About Cupid’s Charity
The seed was planted in 2010. A bunch of people ran through DC without pants; their first effort to help end neurofibromatosis in this form. Two years later, Cupid’s Charity was officially recognized, and today they’ve raised a whopping $16,900,000!
The Undie Runs happen all around the country, and they’re always “brief” (haha). This year, they’ll be hitting 30 cities around the USA.
