Photos: The Kona Underpants Run is Back!

If there’s one thing triathletes love more than running down Ali’i Drive, it’s running down Ali’i Drive in their tighty-whities. Triathletes excitedly gathered ahead of this weekend’s races for the annual Underpants Run, a beloved tradition that’s exactly what it sounds like – triathletes running through the streets of Kona in their underwear. For more on the history of the event, check out our 2013 interview with founder Paul Huddle.
