2013 Underwear Run

Free race in the park. Confuse tourists as you pass by them wearing just underwear.  Meet just west of the Bethesda Fountain at 7:00pm.

This 1.7 mile race (fun run) is where Simon Durkin placed 2nd overall in 2012 and David Parkinson made it onto Swedish TV for his attire.

Registration opens on June 3 and sells out in three hours!

    Looks like this underwear run is going to be a wet underwear contest/run!

      Sweet. It's my only bar review break (other than my long run) for the weekend so I'd like to make it count!

      If it doesn't work out chez David I'm happy to suggest spots for drinks nearby.

    I'm sorry if I missed it, but is the meeting place at the 72nd Street Transverse, the same place we meet on Tuesday nights, just above Bethesda Fountain? Thanks!

      Its near there. Most people were congregating where west drive intersects with the 72nd st transverse

    I didn't register in time. I can still do this right and just have to ride the subway in my underwear?!

      First of all its not really a race more of a parade and there's definitely some crashing going on. Just come we'll work it out.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
