Runners stripped down to their underwear to take part in Cupid's Undie Run, a one-mile "fun run" that streaked through downtown on Saturday. All proceeds from run registration fees will go to the Children’s Tumor Foundation. Last year, Cupid's Undie Run raised $3.5 million, nationwide.

The event began at the historic Belasco Theater at noon, before the actual run kicked off at 2. At the finish line? An open bar, and Cupid himself.

Only in L.A. would running around outside in next-to-nothing in the middle of February not sound completely insane.
