ALL ABOUT THE UNDIES RUN.
The Underwear Run was started in 1997 by Roch Frey and Paul Huddle. The run takes place Thursday, October 7th at 8am- just prior to Ironman Hawaii which takes place on Saturday, October 9th. The run starts and finishes at Pacific Vibrations. Donations support the West Hawaii Special Olympics and the Hale Mua Cultural Group.
The Undies Run was started at first to poke fun at triathletes who wore their training gear such as speedos, spandex and sports bras not just while training but out shopping, at coffee shops and almost anywhere. Some say “If you are going to run in your Speedos you might as well run in your underwear.”
The run is like a tradition to all who go out to race and spectate Ironman Kona and its proceeds go to local smaller charities on the island. Now, there's something to run for! Hope to see y'all there!
