Your chance to run the streets of Adelaide in your underwear
Running around the streets in your undies would normally attract the attention of the local constabulary, except on Sunday 18th January when everyone is encouraged to drop off those outer layers to support this great cause as they seek to raise awareness and funds to fight bowel cancer.
The People's Choice Undies Run kicks off at 5pm as an estimated crowd of 100,000 gathers for the first race of the Santos Tour Down Under. Runners, walkers and dogs get to be part of an estimated throng of 1,000 others as they traverse the 1.7km enclosed cycling circuit around Rymill Park.
As part of the registration fee, event participants can select a range of branded underwear to wear as part of the event. Unfortunately, due to safety reasons, it is not possible to run the event in your own undies. The Undies Run is not a timed race, and awards or certificates are not provided to participants.
Bowel cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia, killing 4,000 Australians each year. But, if detected early with a simple test, up to 90% of bowel cancers can be treated. By participating in the People's Choice Undies Run, participants help raise awareness about the importance of bowel cancer screening and raise funds to beat bowel cancer and reduce the embarrassment associated with the disease.
