1st Annual Jersey Shore Undy 5000 5K Run/Walk

I have been a big fan of what my mother calls “toilet bowl humor” since I was old enough to speak so it’s no wonder the name of this race kicks me in the funny bone. (I’m really glad they didn’t incorporate the word panties, I hate that word.)  The 1st Annual Jersey Shore Undy 5000 5K run/walk to fight colon cancer will be held on Saturday, July 31 at 7 a.m. at Pier Village in Long Branch. Everyone who participates in the race receives a pair of Undy boxer style shorts to run in. It is a  fun and funny way to raise awareness for a very unfunny disease.   The 5K run begins at 7:00am so it’s well before the sweltering Jersey Shore heat and sun are at full power.
This is a family oriented event open to all ages. In addition to the 5K, there will be a family fun run and activities for children. The cost to race is your drawers is $30. Race entry went on sale June 1st. Team registration closes at 5:00pm on Thursday, July 22 and individual on-line registration closes at 5:00pm on July 28th.
