5K dress code: Undies on the outside

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Organizers of an annual festival of laughter have held a 5K race with a unique dress code.

As part of the 3.1-mile FUNderwear Run on Sunday morning, runners were encouraged by Gilda's LaughFest to wear undies on the outside, over their clothes. Organizers say about 300 people participated, with misty conditions and a 21-degree temperature at the 10 a.m. start.

The FUNderwear Run supports Gilda's Club Grand Rapids, a free emotional health support community where people can find laughter in the midst of a cancer or grief journey.

The race began on the Grand Rapids Community College campus.

LaughFest runs through next Sunday. Headliners include Jay Leno, Lily Tomlin, Sinbad and Chris Tucker.
