Once again runners will be dropping their pants and sprinting through the city in the annual Underwear Affair. Benefiting the BC Cancer Foundation, Underwear Affair’s goal is to draw attention to cancers below the belt – prostate, colorectal, ovarian, testicular, bladder, cervical, and uterine.
The 10km run and 5km walk are joined by the new event Booty Hunt, an urban scavenger hunt through the streets of the city looking for a cure to the below-the-belt cancers. Grab your whole gang of BFFs, work friends, workout buddies, booty calls (especially them), significant others, landlord, frenemies, anyone and everyone and hit the streets! Underwear Affair events start off from Lot 6C – 88 Pacific Boulevard (Next to Roger’s Arena), Booty Hunt competitors check-in at 1pm before being released on the streets at 2pm. Run and walk check-in starts at 3:30pm, stretching exercises happen at 5:45pm then the run starts at 6:00pm followed by the walk.
So don’t be alarmed if you are passed on the street by someone, or a whole bunch of someones, in their skivvies. Cheer them on!
