Registration

How much does it cost to register?

The earlier you register for Cupid’s Undie Run, the cheaper your registration will be and the more you will be rewarded. 

Cupid’s Early Bird Special will be $50 for registration. This will be the CHEAPEST possible price throughout the campaign.  The Early Bird special will run from December 26, 2019 until January. 

Early Bird registration will include entry to the event and after party, a pair of Calvin Klein Cupid’s Undies valued at up to $49.95, free postage and entry to the event day and post race activities.

Once the Early bird special finishes, registration will be $60. Unlike previous years, we will not be having multiple sales throughout the campaign. General admission to Cupid’s Undie Run 2020 will be $60 and include CK undies and postage. 

If you would like to buy additional merchandise, you can do so through our online store as you register.

Can children attend Cupid’s Undie Run?

Cupid’s Undie Run 2020 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 Calvin Klein 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, March 12, 2020.

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 March 12, 2020. 

After this date, you will be required to pick up your registration pack from the event organisers on the day.


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 have cloak desks 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 city pages and emails for alerts, and be following Cupid’s Undie Run Oz on social media for live updates!
