Yeah, you read that right. Here’s what you need to know…
WHO: Anyone who is comfortable running in their skivvies.
WHAT: Cupid’s Indie Run 2019
WHEN: This Saturday, February 9th, noon to 4 p.m.
WHERE: Stage 48 at 605 West 48th St. (Between 11th and 12th.)
WHY: Showing off your six pack or runner’s shins? Nope. It’s for charity, people! All proceeds will go to find a cure for neurofibromatosis, a rare genetic disorder that causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body. The running-in-their-undies idea was borne of the fact that those affected with the disease can’t cover up their tumors. Hence, runners doff their duds in solidarity!
Tix are $50–which will gain you entry into a pre-and-post run party, complete with a costume contest and awards! By “pre and post”, they mean most of the time between noon and 4. The run is scheduled for 2 p.m. and is expected to be over by 2:15. Clearly the organizers don’t plan to work their runners all that hard, a plan we’re fully on board with!
