Need a little help getting into the Valentine’s Day spirit? Sign up to dash through the streets in your skivvies at the annual Cupid’s Undie Run. Not only is this rowdy, raucous sprint one of the best things to do in winter, it also raises tons of money for the Children's Tumor Foundation. After the event, put some clothes on and head to one of the city's best bars with fireplaces to warm up. If scantily-clad fitness isn’t your beat, make sure to check out all of the other sensational NYC events in February, too.

What is the Cupid’s Undie Run?

Every year, brave runners with a flair for exhibitionism hit the streets in dozens of cities to raise money and awareness for the Children’s Tumor Foundation. The run lasts approximately one mile, and the nonprofit has raised over $16.9 million since 2010.

Where is the Cupid’s Undie Run?

The shenanigans begin at Stage 48, where participants meet before the race. The route is a one-mile course around Pier 84. The after party also goes down at Stage 48.

When is the Cupid’s Undie Run?

The date for the Cupid's Undie Run in NYC is Saturday, February 9. Check-in is at noon. The official run is at 2pm, and there’s an after-party back at Stage 48 for the euphoric, scantily-clad revelers that runs until 4pm. As an added bonus, raise $250 and you'll get open bar privileges, a t-shirt and, of course, some undies.
