There's guaranteed be a fair amount of nervous giggling at the starting line, but it's easy to run along Lake Burley Griffin in your undies when you know it's for a good cause.
The annual Cupid's Undie Run is on again in Canberra on Sunday February 18, with hundreds expected to strip down to their underwear to raise money for the Children's Tumour Foundation (CTF).
It's as easy as putting on your runners and some underwear and heading to the Southern Cross Yacht Club at 10am to take part in the fun run. Cupid's Undie Run takes place in 17 locations across Australia and will this year raise funds to promote awareness of genetic disorder Neurofibromatosis (NF.)
Despite being relatively unknown, NF affects more than 10,000 Australians and that figure is on the rise. The disorder causes tumours to form in the brain, spinal cord and nerves and at this point in time there is no cure.
At just 1.5km, Cupid's Undie Run is suitable for Canberrans of all fitness levels. All entrants will receive a t-shirt and undies courtesy of undie run sponsor Bonds. Post-event, all entrants will be invited to celebrate with food and drinks.
