Cupids Undie Run in Newcastle / by Kian West

"In Newcastle we are holding the event at Nobbys Surf Life Saving Club, and we are running up to the lighthouse and back. The event starts at 12pm at Nobbys, with the run kicking off at 2pm. For entertainment, we have the amazing Micks King on site who will be providing musical acts and entertainment throughout the day" Robert Palmer, race director for Cupids Undie Run in Newcastle, who goes on to tell me "We held the event in 2016 in 3 cities, however, in 2017 we are going National with 12 cities! Cupid's will be held on the 19th of February. The cities we are holding the runs in are; Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Wollongong, Gold Coast, Bathurst, Townsville, Fremantle, Adelaide, Canberra and Newcastle!

Our major fundraiser event is called, Cupids Undie Run which is the world’s largest organised underwear run serving as an international fundraiser to benefit the Children’s Tumour Foundation in Australia and the U.S respectively. The event combines an approximate 1.5km run in your undies (or fancy dress!) and pre and post celebrations at a venue to recognise the event’s top fundraisers."
