Can children attend Cupid’s Undie Run?

Cupid’s Undie Run 2019 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.

Do you have to run in just your underwear?

No! At Cupid’s we understand that not everyone wants to Dare to Bare. 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 Cupid’’s apparel for sale on the day, but brand and design is subject to availability.

Will the event merchandise be posted to me?

For the first time, postage is included in VIP registrations.  All participants who choose this option and register before February 1 will receive their Cupid’s Kit via post at the address they register with.

Is there a cutoff date for postage?

The last day to order your VIP ticket is 1 February 2019.

The Charity
Where does the money go?

Donations to Cupid’s Undie Run benefit the Children’s Tumour Foundation of Australia (CTF). For more information on CTF, please see About the Charity.

Are donations tax deductible?

Absolutely!  The Children’s Tumour Foundation of Australia is a registered charity with deductible gift recipient status, so any donation of $2 or more is fully tax-deductible. (Please note donations are only tax-deductible when the donation is a true gift only, and not to funds raised through fundraising activities where there is a material benefit or advantage, such as the sale of raffle tickets or merchandise. Donations in this case are not tax-deductible.)

Does the Children’s Tumour Foundation only support children living with Neurofibromatosis?

The Children’s Tumour Foundation of Australia is the only charity that supports both children and adults with Neurofibromatosis.

What is Neurofibromatosis (NF)?

NF is a rare genetic disorder that causes tumours to grow on nerves throughout the body. It is NOT cancer. The tumours that grow are typically benign, but in some cases they can turn malignant.

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. NF can lead to a range of complications including deafness, blindness, paralysis, physical deformities, bone abnormalities, learning disabilities and chronic pain. Occurring in 1 in 2,500 births (approx 2 million worldwide), there is no cure and sadly very few treatment options.

For more information about NF, please see the NF fact sheet.  To meet some of the affected by NF near you, check out the NF Hero section of our site.

Race Day
What should I bring on Race Day?

ID and undies in Sydney but all other cities you will pick up on the day. The rest is optional. 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 stuff get lost in the bag shuffle.  Plus we don’t take responsibility for your belongings if they get lost so we say run with your phone!

Oh, and try to plan where you’ll keep your ID/phone/etc. while you’re out running the streets. A baggie into your undies?  Gross, but it works.  Stuffing into your socks? That works. Fanny packs are always hilarious too.

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

Cupid’s is an event that is managed by volunteer Race Directors across 17 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, click on your city under the 2019 CITIES tab.

Follow your location specific FACEBOOK event, for updates and details, type in Cupid’s 2019 <your city> in to the search bar.

Is Cupid's Undie Run a race?

Cupid’s Undie Run is a fun run, not a race.  It is not timed, there are no timing chips or race bibs. There are no individual race winners except in Melbourne we know you guys are competitive, 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!

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 Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for live updates!

What hashtags can I use for my event photos on social media?

The hashtags we use are

#CupidsUndieRun #ImWithCupid #Dare2Bare #CelebrateDifference #EndNF #ConquerNF

Can I volunteer to help on the day?

Yes! We would love your help.
