Undies in out­side run

The Advertiser - - NEWS - ANTIMO IANNELLA

A RECORD crowd en­joyed per­fect weather for yes­ter­day’s sixth an­nual Peo­ple’s Choice Undies Run in the east­ern park­lands.

Ade­laide’s East End was bathed in sun­shine as more than 1600 peo­ple stripped down to the bare es­sen­tials for the char­ity fundraiser, which raises aware­ness and funds for bowel can­cer re­search, held be­fore the San­tos Tour Down Un­der Clas­sic.

Fam­i­lies were out in force, with ba­bies and tod­dlers decked out in mini capes as they were al­lowed to par­tic­i­pate in the 2.3km event for the first time.

Anas­ta­sia La­mont, 27, of Hec­torville, took along good friends Felix Hertzer, Damien Roberts, Jade Hip­kiss-Win­der, Caleb Staehr and Na­dia Kot­ska for the run and all had an “amaz­ing” time, she said.

“We thought we’d get a crew to­gether and it’s been re­ally en­joy­able,” she said.

“It raises aware­ness for a good cause and, be­cause ev­ery­one strips down to our un­der­wear, it’s more ap­peal­ing for younger peo­ple.

“It was also great to see all the young kids tak­ing part, they just looked ab­so­lutely gor­geous.” PAGE 19: BACH­E­LOR BRINGS HIS LOVE HOME, IN ADE­LAIDE CON­FI­DEN­TIAL
