Where will the Cancer Council’s Undies Run be held in 2019?

In past years, the Cancer Council’s Undies Run has been run as a part of the Santos Tour Down Under. This year, the event will be held at Adelaide Oval and will take part before the Adelaide Strikers V Hobart Hurricanes BBL Cricket game on Monday, 21 January 2019.

Who can register for Cancer Council’s Undies Run?

Anyone can register to take part in the event, however the event capacity is a lot smaller than previous Undies Runs, with a max of 200 people allowed to participate due to event logistics and the change in venue. Registrations will be offered on a first come, first serve basis so it’s important that you get in quick and register so you don’t miss out. Every person who registers to participate needs to commit to raising a minimum of $300 for Cancer Council SA in the lead up to the event.

Is there a registration fee?

There will not be a registration fee, however each person who registers will need to commit to raising $300 minimum in the lead up to the event. This fundraising minimum is needed in order to help make the event successful and you’ll also be provided with a ticket to the game and Undies to wear at the event once you’ve reached this minimum. We’ll be helping you along the way with tips and tricks to reach your fundraising goal.

What undies sizing and style options are available for participants?

Images and sizing for Undies Run undies and tops can be viewed during registration process. Just remember UV radiation levels could still be 3 and above at the time of Cancer Council’s Undies Run, so while you're in your undies, please be SunSmart and slop on plenty of sunscreen, slap on a hat, slide on some sunglasses and seek shade when possible.

What happens if I am unable to reach the $300 fundraising goal? Will I still be able to take part?

When you sign up for the event, you commit to raising a minimum of $300. Anyone who does not raise $300 by January 7 2019, will unfortunately be unable to take part on their event on the day. It is important that each runner reaches this minimum in order to help make the event raise a meaningful fundriasing total in order to help deliver Cancer Council SA’s bowel cancer programs.

Can I transfer my entry or obtain a refund?

Entry to the event is non-refundable and non-transferrable. As there is a cap on the number of participants who can take part, there is a waitlist for those who miss out. If you cannot make the run, we ask that you let us know as soon as possible so that we can offer your place to someone else.  You are unable to transfer your place to someone else. Please contact Cancer Council SA for more information on 1300 85 85 65.
