The Return of UCLA's Undie Run?

Spring Quarter, '08: This was probably the biggest we've ever seen. It took 10 minutes for the thousands of students to make it through the Strathmore Ave. tunnel. (Photo: Ryan D. Night)

Despite a ban on the final's week celebration that is UCLA's Undie Run, over 1,500 students are already signed up on Facebook for next Wednesday's event. And it seems UCLA officials aren't going to stop it from happening, save for having campus police crack down on violations such as jay walking, which happened when a few hundred students gathered last December for an unofficial run.

Robert Naples, associate vice chancellor, told The Daily Bruin if the upcoming run is problematic--the event became unsanctioned last year after repair costs and safety concerns arose--officials would not be interested in developing an event next quarter. That alternative event, which apparently includes wearing underwear, is already underway, but no details have been released.

LAist has been to quite a number of undie runs in the past. Enjoy some photos:
