Hundreds will strip down for the Underwear Run in Central Park this Friday

Running through Central Park is great and all, but doing so in as little clothing as possible takes the activity to a whole new level. On Friday, hundreds of near-naked exercise enthusiasts will run a 1.7 mile course in Central Park for the Gildan Underwear Run, a strange annual event that precedes the New York City Triathlon. Stripping down to your skivvies and jogging through Central Park might seem like a pretty bold decision, but it pales in comparison to the choice to take a dip in the Hudson River (which is apparently perfectly safe to swim in).

The run kicks off at 6:30pm and is perfect for anyone who is eager to take of their clothes and get sweaty on a Friday evening but is unable to score a Tinder date.

Registration for the event is closed, but attendees can cheer on the skin-showing participants along the course. The event may attract a small audience of creeps, but that's nothing new for anyone who's completed the annual Cupid's Undie Run on Valentine's Day.
