Cupid's Undie Run — Saturday, February 18. 2 p.m. $35
Bare your best with all the folks suiting down for this weekend’s Undie Run. The mile-ish race is more about the charity than the competition with proceeds to benefit the Children’s Tumor Foundation. So whether you run solo or with a team, have a good laugh and raise money for NF research. (Dick's Last Resort, 154 2nd Ave N, Nashville, TN 37201) cupidsundierun.org | Photo by Mollie Kendall
