From the organiser

On Valentines Day weekend, Sunday 17 February 2019, lets put the hilarity in charity with hundreds of other Cupids runners taking to the streets in celebration of their fundraising for the Childrens Tumour Foundation.

The Cupids Undie Run is not about winning or losing, its about FUNDRAISING FOR A CURE!

SO lets celebrate our differences and encourage everyone to #Dare2bare. Whether you run in your undies or wear a crazy costume, you can help us shine a light on Neurofibromatosis (NF) and spread the message that STRIPPED DOWN, WE ARE ALL THE SAME- we are all beautiful, strong and deserving of acceptance.

Overview

Hop, skip, dance or cartwheel your way through our ‘brief’ 1.5km run. Cupid’s Undie Run is not about winning or losing, it’s about FUNDRAISING FOR A CURE!

Cupid’s Undie Run is the largest community fundraising event for the Children’s Tumour Foundation. It puts the FUN in ‘fun run’ and provides an opportunity for Australia to come together and party our pants off…all for a good cause!

Cupid’s is a celebration– with a post run after party packed full of entertainment! We want to celebrate our differences and encourage everyone to #Dare2bare. Whether you run in your undies or wear a crazy costume, you can help us shine a light on Neurofibromatosis (NF) and spread the message that STRIPPED DOWN, WE ARE ALL THE SAME- we are all beautiful, strong and deserving of acceptance.

NF causes a range of health problems, including the growth of tumours on the nerve cells. People with NF can develop internal and external tumours that can be disfiguring and/or make the sufferer feel ‘different’. By participating in Cupid’s, you are saying that it is OK to be different, while raising awareness and much needed funds for a genetic disorder that is often misdiagnosed and largely misunderstood. This is a day that isn’t about running, winning or even undies…it is about coming together to #ConquerNF!

What is the difference between a VIP tickets and a self-styled ticket?

Cupid’s VIP $70: includes access to the event and after party, exclusive Cupid’s Calvin Klein Underwear (RRP up to $49.95!!), an ‘I’m with Cupid t-shirt’, VIP Cupid’s wrist band, a Cupid’s temporary tattoo and postage of your Cupid’s pack to your door!

Cupid’s Self-styled $45: includes access to the event and after party! Dress in your own Cupid’s costume (superheroes, tutus, anything is welcome. The more outrageous the better!). No Cupid’s merchandise is included.

Can children attend Cupid’s Undie Run?

Cupid’s Undie Run 2019 does not have a strict age restriction. However, due to the nature of the event it has been planned to appeal to people aged 18 and over. There will be no registration options or merchandise provided to people under the age of 18. We will not be providing entertainment or catering for people under the age of 18. We request that if you do wish to bring anyone under the age of 18, that you let your local race director know and ensure that they are adequately supervised at all times. It is up to the individual discretion of parents to determine whether they feel Cupid’s is a suitable event for a child to attend.

Do you have to run in just your underwear?

No! At Cupid’s we understand that not everyone wants to Dare to Bare. We love costumes! The more outrageous the better! Come in a tutu, a superhero outfit or your Calvin Klein undies on the day, as long as you are there, we are happy!

Will merchandise be sold on the day?

We will endeavour to have Cupid’’s apparel for sale on the day, but brand and design is subject to availability.

Will the event merchandise be posted to me?

For the first time, postage is included in VIP registrations. All participants who choose this option and register before February 1 will receive their Cupid’s Kit via post at the address they register with.

POST RUN CELEBRATIONS
