It’s a mighty cold weekend to run around in your underwear — but that’s what participants in Cupid’s Undie Run will do.

Runners in their skivvies will race about a mile Sunday afternoon, starting on the 300 block of Pennsylvania Avenue SE. A few spots in the previously sold-out race were open as of 2:50 p.m. It costs $80 to run but is free to watch.

The 300 block of Pennsylvania Avenue SE will be closed to traffic starting about 1 p.m., police said. Streets on the following race route will be closed to traffic from about 2 to 3:30 p.m.:

  • West on Pennsylvania Avenue SE to 3rd Street SE
  • North on 3rd Street SE to Constitution Avenue NE
  • West on Constitution Avenue NE to 1st Street NE
  • South on 1st Street NE to Independence Avenue SE
  • East on Independence Avenue SE to 3rd Street SE
  • South on 3rd Street SE to Pennsylvania Avenue SE
  • East on Pennsylvania Ave SE to the finish line

The race that takes place in 38 cities in the U.S. and Australia raises money for The Children’s Tumor Foundation.
