It’s the wild, pantless party you’ve been waiting for! Time to run the streets of Detroit in your underwear!
That’s right! Cupid’s Undie Run returns to the city, Saturday, February 10 at The Fillmore (2115 Woodward Ave.).
Undie runners will brave the brisk weather in their bedroom’s best for a 1-mile stretch.
Registration starts at $40 per runner, with limited space available. Registration cost goes up as more people join, so it’s best to register today.
The party starts at noon when doors to the Fillmore open wide to receive the scantily clad crowd. The event will be hosted by media partners at Channel 955.
It’s off to the races at 2:00 p.m. as the runners storm the streets of Detroit dressed in their Valentine’s best. A route map of the race is featured on the Undie Run website.
V.I.P. sections with open bars will be available for everyone who fundraises over $250. To learn more about fundraising, check out ways you can earn cool stuff while raising money for a great cause.
While there will not be an official after party for the event, runners will likely keep the festivities going at some awesome downtown spots.
There are a lot of different ways to get involved with Cupid’s Undie Run.
First, register for the event and bring your friends! For every friend you sign up for the run, you get $15 for Undie Run merchandise and your friend gets 15% off registration. Win-win!
Runners can also create their own fundraising page, so they can earn prizes like open bar, S’well bottles, a Patagonia jacket and more. To learn more about fundraising, check out the incentives page. This year, there are fundraising rewards for donations from $50 – $10,000.
Runners can also create teams and get their friends to join in the fun. When registering, choose the “start a team” option. All team members must register individually, so tell your friends your team name and they can select it from the dropdown when they register.
If you’re not a fan of the cold, you can simply donate to the run, benefitting The Children’s Tumor Foundation (CTF), the world’s largest non-government organization dedicated to ending Neurofibromatosis (NF).
NF affects one out of every 3,000 children born in the U.S. as a disease that can cause tumors, cancer, blindness, deafness and learning disabilities. CTF is critical in supporting children diagnosed with NF, as well as their family and friends.
Lastly, as the Cupid’s Undie Run is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the race mainly runs (I’m on fire with puns) on volunteer support. Lend a hand at this amazing charity event by working packet pick-up, helping decorate the venue or working the course on race day. Sign up here, and a Cupid’s team member will reach out.
This year, the Undie run anticipates 1,000 undaunted, rock star runners, aiming to raise $206,150 for CTF.
This Valentine’s week, skip the dinner date night and head to downtown Detroit for a charitable cause that calls over 40,000 runners in over 38 cities across the country every year.
So what do you say? Do you dare to bare it all at this year’s Cupid Undie Run?
