Valentine’s Day is full of innuendo. People gift each other sexy undergarments, go on “naked” scavenger hunts at the MFA, and maybe even go out to watch Fifty Shades of Grey.

But while these activities might allude to nudity, it’s the Cupid’s Undie Run that is the boldest event of them all. This Valentine’s Day, the nationwide charity undie run is once again taking place in Boston. Participants will strip down to their undies—red and pink with hearts all over—and after a pre-party at Lansdowne Pub, will run a mile-long route through Fenway Park.

In 2014, people participated despite the snowfall, stripping to their skivvies and romping through Fenway like they owned the place. They raised $213,000 last year for the Cupid’s Undie Run charity, the Children’s Tumor Foundation. A fun run with a cause? Now there’s a Valentine’s Day plan we can get behind.

XOXO, now put your pants back on.

Check out more photos from last year.


The 2015 Cupid’s Undie Run takes place Saturday, February 14, at Lansdowne Pub. Learn more at
