Do I have to be vaccinated for COVID19 to attend? 

We respect that this is a time of uncertainty and your health, the health of our volunteers and our staff remain a priority. 

Currently, some venues require participants to be double-vaccinated to attend the Cupid's Undie Run 2022. The Cupid's Undie Run event and after-party will be adhering to a COVID-19 Safety Plan and following government guidelines that apply on Sunday 20 February 2022 (Canberra - 27 February) in each state and territory. We will endeavour to update each run's event page as soon as the after-party venue advises us of any changes or there are changes to government guidelines that apply to Cupid's Undie Run and the Children's Tumour Foundation of Australia.

Is capacity/tickets limited for each run?

Tickets are limited based on the capacity of the after-party venue at the time of purchasing the ticket, or the capacity on the day of the event, Sunday 20 February 2022 (Canberra - 27 Feb). Capacity is also subject to COVID-19 Safety Guidelines at the time of purchasing the ticket and we will endeavour to keep this website updated as quickly as these guidelines change and email you the week prior to the event.

Can children attend Cupid’s Undie Run?

Cupid’s Undie Run does not have a strict age restriction. However, due to the nature of the event it has been planned to appeal to people aged 18 and over. There will be no registration options or merchandise provided to people under the age of 18. We will not be providing entertainment or catering for people under the age of 18. We request that if you do wish to bring anyone under the age of 18, that you let your local race director know and ensure that they are adequately supervised at all times. It is up to the individual discretion of parents to determine whether they feel Cupid’s is a suitable event for a child to attend. If children do attend Cupid’s Undie Run, we ask that parents purchase them a meal, as the catering provided is for registered participants only.

Do you have to run in just your underwear?

No! At Cupid’s our message is CELEBRATE DIFFERENCE and whilst we promote the concept that stripped down, we are all the same...we understand that brave comes in different shapes and sizes (And confidence levels). We love costumes! The more outrageous the better! Come in a tutu, a superhero outfit or your Cupid's undies on the day, as long as you are there, we are happy!

Will merchandise be sold on the day?

We will endeavour to have some Cupid’s apparel for sale on the event day, but the brand and design will be subject to availability. It is best to secure your merchandise early on, as merchandise is limited- once we sell out, we won’t have any more.

Will the event merchandise be posted to me?

Yes! Provided you order before the postage cut off date, 7 February 2022. We will start posting our your undies and other Cupid's merchandise in late December 2021.

Is there a cutoff date for postage?

The last day to register and receive your CK undies and any merchandise purchased via the post is 7 February 2022. 

There will be limited merchandise available to purchase on the day of the run.


The Charity

Where does the money go?

The money raised will help individuals and families impacted by NF navigate a pathway from fear to hope with the support of the Children’s Tumour Foundation of Australia.  Funds raised from the Cupid’s Undie Run will go towards sustaining a range of programs and services that address the physical, emotional and psychological impact that NF can have on a person or family.

This includes multi-disciplinary NF clinics, research into effective treatments and social, behavioural and developmental issues, a national phone and online support network, as well as family camps and community days that help reduce feelings of social isolation and anxiety.

What is Neurofibromatosis (NF)?

NF is a genetic disorder that causes tumours to grow on any nerve throughout the body, including the brain and spine. There are three types of Neurofibromatosis; NF1, NF2 and schwannamatosis. Each case of NF is unique to the individual and there is no way to predict how it will manifest. 

In NF, tumours can develop just underneath the skin’s surface and cause visible external growths, or they can grow deep within the body and affect major organs and bones. NF can lead to a range of complications including deafness, blindness, paralysis, physical deformities, bone abnormalities, learning disabilities and chronic pain. NF occurs in as many as 1 in 2,500 births (approx 2 million worldwide). It is progressive, unpredictable and there is no cure.

Event Day Information

What should I bring on event day?

ID, sunglasses, sunscreen, your Cupid’s undies and/or costume, a hat and some running shoes!  We’ll  attempt to have cloak desks available at each venue where our volunteers can look after any gear you have, but try to keep it light so you don’t accidentally lose anything or have your possessions get lost in the bag shuffle.

It is important to note, that we don’t take any responsibility for your belongings if they get lost so we say run with your phone or pack a backpack...bum bags are back in fashion...aren’t they?

Will the Cupid’s event be the same across all locations?

Cupid’s is an event that is managed by volunteer Race Directors across all locations. The general premise of Cupid’s will be the same with a warm up, games, run, party and prizes. The run route will be approximately 1.5-2kms in all locations.

The size, types of catering and drinks provided, ambassadors and inclusions will depend on the venue and your individual location. To view details specific to your location, look at your city's event page.

Is Cupid's Undie Run a race?

Cupid’s Undie Run is a fun run that isn’t about running, or winning...or even undies. It is about fundraising for a cure.  It is not timed, there are no timing chips or race bibs. There are no individual race winners, only top fundraisers.

If you are competitive at heart, we suggest you put some of that competitiveness to see if you have what it takes to become a top fundraiser!

Are spectators allowed in the venue?

No, only registered participants will be allowed in the venue. We will be pushing capacity, so no exceptions. Spectators are encouraged to line the race course and cheer on all their friends, family, and strangers. Someone’s gotta take the pictures, after all!

Registrations will be open on the day of the event, so if you would like to join the after party and run with the coolest kids in town, you can pay to register on the day. 

What if it rains?

Cupid’s Undie Run will happen rain, hail or shine. It’s only a kilometre or so. You can do it! If there is a weather emergency we will act accordingly. Keep an eye on your Undie Run event page and emails for alerts, and be following @cupidsundierunoz on social media for live updates!
