Ironman athletes tend to be Type-A personalities and the week of the World Championships brings them out in their best form. Well- one such athlete decided about 11-years ago that (1) the athletes needed a good laugh, to enjoy some comraderie and to step back from the seriousness of the race and (2) to protest people wearing speedos in public places and/or for fashion and thus began the Underpants Run. It’s a silly tradition but who would give up the opportunity to wear their undies in public and recieve praise for it!
P.S. I spotted AVIA athletes- Ben Greenfield & legend Scott Tinley struttin’ their stuff!
