I think I have said a couple times that I am not that into novelty races. I signed up once for Warrior Dash and then couldn’t go. I am kind of glad that happened. I don’t really find races that make you jump through fire, shock you with low voltage, eat weird things, whatever, very interesting. Training for a 26.2 mile race painful enough without having to limbo barbed wire.
There was that one time I got sucked into an overpriced novelty race and I wore a crown and a tutu. Yes, I did that. Oh and then Run With Scissors. I dressed up like a pumpkin (it was halloween) and runners actually carried scissors. Safety scissors, duh. I don’t trust myself with the real thing.
So would I be the type of person to run a race in no costume? Not just no costume, how about no clothes?
On February 16th, on the streets of Tremont, the Cavaliers Company brings to you The Cupid’s Undie Run.
Sound crazy? Yeah, it kind of is. Running in your skivvies in February is pretty ridiculous. But it is such a good cause. And if you were looking for opportunities to be philanthropic this new year, this is your big chance to give and have fun.
The Undie Run Cleveland is a race, it’s a fundraiser, it’s a party. It’s seriously crazy but for a seriously good cause. Participants get down with Cupid to raise big dollars for the Children’s Tumor Foundation.
The Undie Run takes participants on a mile course through the neighborhood of Tremont with a pre and post-race party hosted by South Side. Being that the race is only a mile means that anyone can do it. Registration fee is only $25 and goes to a good charity. When you sign up you can join a team, create a team, or sign up as an individual. Once you have created your Undie Run page, participants can set up fundraising goals for this awesome cause. Not a fundraiser? Just want to donate and come out for the fun? That’s cool too.
You don’t need a team to register, you can sign up as an individual. Hell, join my team and run with me! You can join team Am I There Yet (so much naming creativity right here I can’t even stand it) or feel free to donate by clicking here!
Fundraising has some cool incentives:
- Raise $25 – Get a pair of Cupid Custom Undies
- Raise $150 – Get VIP access to OPEN BAR at the South Side post-race party (Um, worth it!)
- Raise $500 – Receive a an official Undie Run terricloth Robe (looks like it would be warm and cozy after a run in February in Cleveland, just sayin’)
- Raise $1000 – Win an ipod Nano – and all the fuzzies that come from raising money for a those that need it.
I’ll use any excuse to hang out in Tremont and I kind of love South Side. Plus, I will run just about anything. So I am looking forward to some fun for charity. I would certainly love the company!
The Undie Run will take place on February 16th in Cleveland with other states hosting their own. Brought to you by the Cavaliers Company and hosted by South Side, proceeds and donations to benefit The Children’s Tumor Foundation.
