Join Austin Triathlon Club for a "cheeky" evening at Fleet Feet Austin's Seaholm location. Lace up your running shoes and get ready to show off your favorite pair of underpants while supporting the IRONMAN Foundation's mission of creating tangible change in our race communities!
The Underpants Run was conceived in 1998 by Chris Danahy, Tim Morris, and Paul Huddle as a protest against wearing Speedos in inappropriate places (stores, restaurants, etc.). It has since morphed into a pre-race ice breaker and fund raiser that has become an integral part of the IRONMAN World Championship event week.
Over the years the Kona Underpants Run (UPR) has raised over $150,000 for local charities through registration and merchandise donations. UPR welcomes all ages, all genders and all bodies as we celebrate the Aloha spirit that accompanies this incredible one-of-a-kind spectacle! This year there is a virtual run in conjunction with the 2023 Kona UPR, and Austin Tri Club is hosting an Austin UPR on Monday, October 9th.
There will be a world-wide social media contest for participants using #2023KUPR and the Austin Tri Club (ATC) will be raffling off incredible door prizes at the Monday night run. A few of the giveaways include a FREE entry into IRONMAN Galveston/IRONMAN Woodlands/IRONMAN Waco, the 3M Half Marathon, ATC BOCO Visors/Hats, I love "triathlon" so much t-shirts, and much more!
Entry into the social media contest and raffle drawing requires a $25 registration donation that will go directly to the IRONMAN Foundation's give-backs.
You can register HERE and remember to chose the Virtual Run option in order to be eligible for raffle prizes and the social media contest at this event!
This family friendly in-person event is all about having a blast, so bring your friends, pets, and family along for a memorable experience. All ages, including children, are welcome to participate.
The Route will be a casual( or fast, up to you) 2-3 mile run, followed by brews from our friends at Southern Heights Brewery.
Special Thank You to our supporters!!!! The IRONMAN Foundation, Fleet Feet, High Five Events, and Southern Heights Brewery
